Hydrogen is recognized as a potential and
extremely interesting energy carrier, which can facilitate efficient
utilization of unevenly distributed renewable energy. Furthermore, hydrogen has
an extremely interesting chemistry and form compounds with most elements in the
periodic table and with a variety of different types of bonds. Metal hydrides
has recently become very interesting as new classes of energy materials for
batteries and hydrogen storage. Here we report an overview of our recent
results within new hydrogen containing materials: (i) synthesis of novel metal
borohydrides and studies of their properties for hydrogen storage or as ion
conductors, (ii) tailoring materials properties by formation of eutectic
melting systems, and (iii) in situ powder X-ray diffraction studies of hydrogen
release and uptake reactions. We conclude that the chemistry of hydrides is
very divers, towards multi-functional materials.
Torben received a Ph.D. degree in materials chemistry and did
postdoctoral research at Risø National Laboratory and DESY, Hasylab, Hamburg.
He was awarded a Steno research stipend (2002) by the Danish research council,
a Carlsberg research stipend (2005) form the Carlsberg Foundation and a doctor
of science degree (D.Sc.) from the faculty of science and technology at Aarhus
University. He was awarded the Hydrogen Energy Award in Japan 2016. He is
Professor at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) and Department of
Chemistry, Aarhus University. His research interests are focused on synthesis,
structural, physical and chemical properties of new inorganic materials and
utilisation of synchrotron X-ray radiation for materials characterization. He
has published >220 research papers and received >5400 citations (H = 42).
