Efficient hydrogen fuel cells made from nanoporous materials

Researchers report an advance toward the goal of cars that run on hydrogen rather than gasoline. While the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that practical hydrogen fuel will require concentrations of at least 6.5 percent, the chemists have achieved concentrations of 7.5 percent ? nearly three times as much as has been reported previously ? but at a very low temperature (77 degrees Kelvin).
