Hydrogen storage is one of the attractive research interests in recent years due to the advantages of hydrogen to be used as energy source. The studies on hydrogen storage applications focus mainly on investigation of hydrogen storage capabilities of newly introduced compounds. The present paper aims at characterization of CaXH3 (X: Mn, Fe, or Co) perovskite-type hydrides for the first time to understand their potential contribution to the hydrogen storage applications. CaXH3 compounds have been investigated by density functional theory studies to reveal their various characteristics and hydrogen storage properties. CaXH3 compounds have been optimized in cubic crystal structure and the lattice constants of studied compounds have been obtained as 3.60, 3.50, and 3.48 angstrom for X: Mn, Fe, and Co compounds, respectively. The optimized structures have negative formation enthalpies pointing out that studied compounds are thermodynamically stable and could be synthesized experimentally. The gravimetric hydrogen storage densities of X: Mn, Fe, and Co compounds were found in as 3.09, 3.06, and 2.97 wt%, respectively. The revealed values for hydrogen storage densities indicate that CaXH3 compounds may be potential candidates for hydrogen storage applications. Moreover, various mechanical parameters of interest compounds like elastic constants, bulk modulus, and Poisson's ratio have been reported throughout the study. These compounds were found mechanically stable with satisfying Born stability criteria. Further analyses based on Cauchy pressure and Pugh criterion, showed that they have brittleness nature and relatively hard materials. In addition, the electronic characteristics, band structures, and associated partial density of states of CaXH3 hydrides have been revealed. The dynamic stability behavior of them was verified based on the phonon dispersion curves.


GIS-based site selection methodology for hybrid renewable energy systems: A case study from western Turkey
Aydin, Nazli Yonca; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin; Duzgun, H. Sebnem (Elsevier BV, 2013-06-01)
Renewable energy sources are presently being considered as alternatives to fossil fuels, because they are perpetual, environmentally friendly, and release negligible amounts of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere while producing energy. A disadvantage of renewable energy systems, however, is that continuous energy generation is not possible by using only one type of renewable energy system, since renewable energy resources depend on climate and weather conditions. Two or more renewable energy systems can be ...
Electrochemical performance and modeling of lithium-sulfur batteries with varying carbon to sulfur ratios
Michaelis, Charles; Erisen, Nisa; PALA, DAMLA EROĞLU; Koenig, Gary M. (Wiley, 2019-02-01)
Lithium-sulfur batteries have attracted much research interest because of their high theoretical energy density and low-cost raw materials. While the electrodes are composed of readily available materials, the processes that occur within the cell are complex, and the electrochemical performance of these batteries is very sensitive to a number of cell processing parameters. Herein, a simple electrochemical model will be used to predict, with quantitative agreement, the electrochemical properties of lithium-s...
Temperature resistant mutants of Rhodobacter capsulatus generated by a directed evolution approach and effects of temperature resistance on hydrogen production

Hydrogen (H-2) is a promising alternative energy carrier which can be produced biologically. Rhodobacter capsulatus, a non-sulfur purple photosynthetic bacterium, can produce H-2 under nitrogen-limited, photoheterotrophic conditions by using reduced carbon sources such as simple organic acids. Outdoor closed photobioreactors; used for biological H-2 production are located under direct sunlight, as a result; bioreactors are exposed to temperature fluctuations during day time. In this study to overcome this p...
Design of an outdoor stacked - tubular reactor for biological hydrogen production
KAYAHAN, Emine; Eroglu, Inci; Koku, Harun (Elsevier BV, 2016-11-02)
Photofermentation is one alternative to produce hydrogen sustainably. The photobioreactor design is of crucial importance for an economically feasible operation, and an optimal design should provide uniform velocity and light distribution, low pressure drop, low gas permeability and efficient gas-liquid separation. A glass, stacked tubular bioreactor aimed at satisfying these criteria has been designed for outdoor photofermentative hydrogen production by purple non sulfur bacteria. The design consists of 4 ...
Ammonia borane as hydrogen storage materials
AKBAYRAK, SERDAR; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2018-10-04)
Ammonia borane is an appropriate solid hydrogen storage material because of its high hydrogen content of 19.6% wt., high stability under ambient conditions, nontoxicity, and high solubility in common solvents. Hydrolysis of ammonia borane appears to be the most efficient way of releasing hydrogen stored in it. Since ammonia borane is relatively stable against hydrolysis in aqueous solution, its hydrolytic dehydrogenation can be achieved at an appreciable rate only in the presence of suitable catalyst at roo...
