University of Iowa Student wins Sims Award for work with hydrogen

University of Iowa - Hydrogen Fuel

University of Iowa Master’s student Jessica Reed was awarded the L.B. Sims Outstanding Thesis award for her work with hydrogen gas storage. In her work, Ms. Reed introduced magnetic particles to the surface of a rare metal called palladium, greatly increasing the rate through which the hydrogen enters and leaves the metal. This breakthrough could have significant implications in both fuel storage and portable power supplies that use hydrogen gas. Hydrogen challenges Hydrogen gas is useful in both electrochemical power and combustion power supplies, but can be hard to store…
