The development of new materials represents the recent frontier in hydrogen storage technologies. In the last few decades the preparation of nanostructured materials has had an increasing interest, because the hydrogen storage capacity is closely linked to the material dimensions, and increases considerably with the reduction of the particles sizes. The chemical synthesis plays an important role in the development of new materials for hydrogen absorption because it allows a good control of the hydride phase sizing, and thus of the kinetics/ thermodynamics of such materials. The aim of the work concerns the synthesis by chemical techniques of metals nanoparticles. Nanostractured metals embedded into a polymeric matrix are prepared. The polymer was used for achieving nanoparticles with tailored properties.
