For nanoconfine NaAlH4, H2 release temperature shifts ~80 oC lower compared to bulk NaAlH4, and 2.4 wt% H2 reabsorbed  with only 24 bar H2 pressure and 150 oC for 3 h. Also the thermodynamic equilibriums are shifted, contrast to two H2 release steps for bulk NaAlH4, decomposition of nanoconfined NaAlH4 to NaH, Al, and H2 takes place in a single step.
