A method to manufacture Zeolites modified Carbon Nanostructures with Mg alloy Nanoparticles having a hydrogen storage capacity of ~6.7 wt %. The Carbon Nanostructures – Zeolite composites are zeolite modified exfoliated Nitrogen/Boron doped graphitic oxide dispersed with Mg alloy Nanoparticles as catalysts for the dissociation of hydrogen molecules. The activation of zeolites by KOH treatment and mixing up of activated Zeolites with Carbon Nanostructures along with the source of Nitrogen or Boron, which is a doping agent. An alloy of Mg-TM (Fe, Co, Ni).is used as catalyst. The entire mixture is reduced to the hydrogen storage material by the hydrogen exfoliation method or thermal exfoliation method

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
