Carrying hydrogen in chemically bounded form as cycloalkanes and recovery of hydrogen via a subsequent dehydrogenation reaction is a potential option for hydrogen transport and delivery. We have earlier reported a novel method for transportation and delivery of hydrogen through liquid organic hydrides (LOH) such as cycloalkanes. The candidate cycloalkanes including cyclohexane, methylcyclohexane, decalin etc. contains 6 to 8 wt% hydrogen with volume basis capacity of hydrogen storage of 60e62 kg/m3. In view of several advantages of the system such as transportation by present infrastructure of lorries, no specific temperature pressure requirement and recyclable reactants/products, the LOH definitely pose for a potential technology for hydrogen delivery. A considerable development is reported in this field regarding various aspects of the catalytic dehydro-genation of the cycloalkanes for activity, selectivity and stability. We have earlier reported an account of development in chemical hydrides. This article reports a state-of-art in LOH as hydrogen carrier related to dehydrogenation catalysts, supports, reactors, kinetics, thermodynamic aspects, potential demand of technology in field, patent literature etc.
