While metal-doped mesoporous silicate SBA-15 has been studied extensively for its catalytic properties, the adsorption of molecular hydrogen in this system has not been considered. We report herein that the titaniumdoped material (10% Ti) adsorbs nearly twice the amount of hydrogen at 77 K and a pressure of 25 bar than pure SBA-15, Hydrogen adsorption isotherms also show that binding energies in the Ti-doped material are more than 50% greater than in SBA-15. Neutron vibrational spectroscopy shows clear evidence for interaction of hydrogen with Ti, which is responsible for part of the increase in hydrogen sorption in the material.
