Hydrogen storage capacity on Cu(I)-exchanged SSZ-39 (AEI), -SSZ-13 (CHA) and Ultra stable-Y (USeY, FAU) at temperatures between 279 K and 304 K are investigated. The gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity values reaching 83 mmol H-2 g(-1) (at 279 K and 1 bar) are found to be comparable with the highest adsorption capacity values reported on metal-organic frameworks. The volumetric hydrogen storage capacity values; on the other hand, are found to be more than three times of those reported on metal-organic frameworks (0.57 g/L on Cu(I)-SSZ39 at 1 bar and 296 K vs. ca. 0.18 g/L on Co-2(m-dobdc) at 1 bar and 298 K (Kapelewski MT, Runcevski T, Tarver JD, Jiang HZH, Hurst KE, Parilla PA et al. Record High Hydrogen Storage Capacity in the Metal-Organic Framework Ni-2(m-dobdc) at Near-Ambient Temperatures. Chem Mater 2018; 30:8179e89)). The isosteric heat of adsorption values are calculated to be between 80 kJ mol(-1) and 49 kJ mol(-1) on Cu(I)-SSZ-39 and between 22 kJ mol(-1) and 15 kJ mol(-1) on Cu(I)-US-Y indicating H2 adsorption mainly at Cu(I) cations located at the eight-membered rings on Cu(I)-SSZ-39 and at six-membered rings on Cu(I)-US-Y. Hydrogen adsorption experiments performed at 77 K showed higher adsorption capacity values for Cu(I)-SSZ-39 at 1 bar, but Cu(I)-US-Y showed potential for hydrogen storage at higher pressure values.
