Plugged particles pack in natural gas
Researchers have devised a novel method to boost the natural-gas storage capacity of porous adsorbent materials, which can then be kept and transported at low pressure (Nano Lett. 2016, DOI: 10.1021/acs.nanolett.6b00919). The trick is to seal high-pressure gas inside porous beads using hydrocarbon plugs that can be slowly removed to release the gas, effectively turning the beads into tiny gas tanks. The advance could lead to a compact, lightweight, . . .
