Chemists find better way to pack natural gas into fuel tanks

Increasing numbers of natural gas-powered trucks and buses are hitting the road, but a major disadvantage is the bulky equipment needed to store compressed NG or to keep liquefied NG cold. Now chemists have developed an innovative new storage material for methane that could lessen the hassle of filling up with NG, and extend the range of such vehicles. The material is a flexible metal organic framework that expands when methane is pumped in.
