CNR-RFBR Bilateral Project

Title: Chemical hydrogen storage through ammonia-borane (AB): synthesis of AB dehydrogenation catalysts and combined spectroscopic/computational studies of the mechanism of hydrogen release

Principal Investigators: Maurizio Peruzzini, Andrea Rossin

Project type: International - CNR and RFBR Russia

Duration: 06/2015-06/2018

Abstract: the bilateral CNR-RFBR project, in collaboration with the research group of Prof. Elena Shubina (INEOS-RAS, Moscow), is focused on the synthesis and characterization of novel organometallic hydrides containing metals from the 3d transition series, along with their exploitation as homogeneous catalysts in ammonia-borane and amine-boranes dehydrogenation.

Other ICCOM participants: Maurizio Peruzzini, Andrea Rossin, Giuliano Giambastiani, Lapo Luconi, Giulia Tuci

Partnership: A.N.Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds of the Russian Academy of Sciences (INEOS RAS), Moscow, Russia.
