Abstract:
This paper reports the novel clay based nanocomposites for hydrogen storage application. The Li-Co-Mn double spinel synthesized via combustion method in the presence of carboxyloic acid as both fuel and chelating agent which used as electrocatalyst in this research. The prepared samples characterized by several techniques such as: XRD and SEM to identify the purity and morphology. The hydrogen storage activity of as-synthesized nanocomposites examined by chronopotentiometry charge-discharge techniques. The outcomes indicate that by adding Li-Co-Mn spinel oxide nanoparticles into the clay layers, the discharge capacity increase to 1050 mAh/g as compared to pure clay (750 mAh/g). Our results indicate that modifying by means of Li-Co-Mn spinel oxide nanoparticles can be a promising low-cost method to improve electrochemical performance of clay based materials.
