hy·dro·gen car·ri·er

a molecule that, in conjunction with a tissue enzyme system, carries hydrogen from one metabolite (oxidant) to another (reductant) or to molecular oxygen to form H2O.
Synonym(s): hydrogen acceptor

Hydrogen can make laboratories more efficient, but the first mention of hydrogen carrier gas will leave lab managers wrestling with the idea of how to store and manage changing out many cylinders of flammable hydrogen.
The work will be based on Hydrogenious-developed liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) technology.
The studies are one of the applications of methanol as a safe and cheap hydrogen carrier and justify the research being made on the synthesis and applications of methanol as an alternative source of energy and raw materials for the chemical industry.

Hydrogen carrier gas should be of the same purity level as a helium carrier, at 99.9999 percent purity for trace work less than 1 part per million, or at least 99.9995 percent for most normal analysis.
In 1928 the Hungarian-born American biochemist Albert von Nagyrapolt Szent-Gyorgyi (1893-1986), while working at Cambridge University under Hopkins (see 1900, Tryptophan), isolated a substance from adrenal glands that easily lost and regained a pair of hydrogen atoms and was therefore, like glutathione (see 1921), a hydrogen carrier.
Therefore, the heat flux in the cases where hydrogen carrier gas is used should be much higher than that where nitrogen is used; in the hydrogen case, the heating rate is relatively higher than with the nitrogen sweep gas.
HOGEN GC Laboratory Hydrogen Generators are designed to provide a 24/7 supply of ultra-pure hydrogen carrier gas for gas chromatography (GC) and fuel gas for flame ionization detector (FID) analyzers.
