It was shown that the sorptive capacity for hydrogen in composites based on MCM-41 molecular sieves and nanoparticles of the oxides of 3d metals or the metals themselves at 77 K and 1 atm is determined both by the surface area and by the volume of the micropores of the samples and does not depend on the nature of the 3d metal (Ni, Co, Cu) or its degree of oxidation.
