This project seeks to understand why the gas standards are unstable when under regular conditions and then prevent sample degradation by passivating gas cylinders with novel coatings.

This technology could also be used elsewhere, primarily in the containment of samples of hydrogen fuel for accurate measurement of impurities after said standards have been used for calibration.


A key aspect of 发送 is to work alongside other projects on the University campus to reduce the Carbon Dioxide CO2 emissions. One way the University is working to achieve this is via the use of hydrogen with natural gas. This project can help to improve the storage and transportation of hydrogen.

Project progress (June 2019):

  • Completed comprehensive literature review.
  • Analysed a number of existing coatings/treatments (Luxfer, electropolished, SilcoNert, Experis).
  • Next steps are to analyse more samples and to design and trial passivation ideas.
