• HyCARE at the School of Physical Chemistry

    The School of Physical Chemistry is a yearly event organised in Verbania and promoted by the “Divisione di Chimica Fisica della Società chimica Italiana” covering fundamentals and advanced topics in Physical Chemistry.

    The School is addressed to Italian and foreign graduate and Ph.D. students, as well as to post-doc and young researchers. It consists of a five-days training of lectures provided by prominent scientists active in today’s research covering the field of nanostructures and nanomaterials, from synthetic approaches to advanced characterization methods, and giving the latest insights into up-to-date aspects and applications of nanostructured materials with special emphasis to nanocomposites, bio-nanomaterials, heterogeneous catalysts, environmental, cultural heritage, and energy applications.

    On Thusday 22 June 2023, Marcello Baricco – Coordinator of HyCARE Project and Professor at the Department of Chemistry and NIS (University of Turin) – gave the lesson “Nanomaterials for H2 storage”.

    The lecture focused on the role of nanostructured materials and of interfaces on thermodynamic and kinetic properties of hydrogen storage materials. In particular, hydrogen absorption and desorption in metal and complex hydrides will be discussed. In order to lower the enthalpy of reaction, reactive hydride composites (RHC), consisting in combining two hydrides, will be also considered.
