Abstract

In this study, hydroquinone is selected as a possible organic material to be used for storing and transporting methane. This chemical is known to have capturing ability of various molecules while changing its crystal structure to the β-form from its original structure, α-form at high pressures. Formed α- and β-form clathrate samples were analyzed by means of spectroscopic measurements in order to identify cage occupancy and formed crystal structure. Even though the cage occupancy of CH4 in the β-form hydroquinone is obtained to be 0.8, more investigations are necessary in order to the suggested technique more viable.
