Better storage materials for hydrogen are needed to enable hydrogen powered vehicles of the future. Solid state hydrogen storage materials hold considerable promise in terms of capacity, pressure, safety, and overall system ease of use. However, the complexity of these materials makes advancement difficult and slow. Wildcat’s high throughput platform is the solution to this discovery problem.
Wildcat’s proprietary hydrogen discovery workflow is capable of synthesizing and screening hundreds of promising materials every day. Wildcat produces each sample in bulk form and directly measures hydrogen sorption over multiple cycles. Wildcat is able to synthesize a wide range of the promising material types – from intermetallics to complex metal hydrides – with control of critical variables including particle size, morphology, and catalyst dispersion.
