DR. CHUA YONG SHEN
Welcome to our group page. Our research focus encircles the application of hydrogen as future energy carrier. Hydrogen has been recognized as a potential alternative energy carrier to the fossil energy not only due to its “greenness” but also its high energy density per unit mass. Therefore, we devote our research effort in tackling one of the main challenges in realizing hydrogen economy - hydrogen storage & delivery.
Primary Research area:
1) design and synthesize materials for hydrogen production, storage and delivery mainly for the following applications:
a) Mobile / portable hydrogen storage system for on- board vehicular application
b) Stationary hydrogen storage system for off-grid power supply at remote area
2) design and develop hybrid organic and inorganic materials for gas storage or catalysis application.
