AbstractThe search for the means to convert molecular hydrogen to a metal under static conditions at high pressure is reviewed with emphasis on selected recent developments in both experimental studies and theoretical approaches. One approach suggested recently makes use of mixtures of hydrogen and suitable impurities. In these materials hydrogen is perturbed by impurities with the goal of obtaining the metallization of hydrogen at moderate pressures. This approach has also been extensively examined through the use of first-principles methods and we review this recently explored experimental approach and several theoretical studies that have provided an atomic-scale picture of the interaction of hydrogen with impurities under pressure. The objective of this novel approach is to help determine if metallization of hydrogen at pressures is attainable with currently available experimental techniques.
