1. A composition of matter comprising:
a reduced graphene oxide (rGO)-magnesium (Mg) nanocrystal nanolaminate, the nanolaminate comprising two rGO sheets with Mg nanocrystals distributed therebetween, the nanolaminate having a hydrogen storage capacity of approximately 6.5 weight percent hydrogen and 0.105 kg H2/L, the hydrogen storage capacity of the nanolaminate being equivalent to approximately 7.56 weight percent hydrogen in the Mg nanocrystals.
