Abstract: STORING OF ENERGY RICH GASES LIKE HYDROGEN AND METHANE IN THE FORM OF CLATHRATE HYDRATES IS PROMISING DUE TO THEIR CHARACTERISTIC ADVANTAGES OF BEING ENVIRONMENTALLY BENIGN, REQUIRING ONLY MODERATE TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE CONDITIONS DURING FORMATION AND STORAGE, EASY RECOVERY OF THE STORED GAS AND POSSESS REASONABLE STORAGE CAPACITIES ALONG WITH THE HIGH DEGREE OF SAFETY DUE TO THEIR NON-EXPLOSIVE NATURE. MACROSCOPIC KINETICS OF HYDROGEN HYDRATE FORMATION AND DISSOCIATION IN THE PRESENCE OF LIQUID AND GAS PHASE THERMODYNAMIC PROMOTERS STARTING FROM WATER OR AQUEOUS SOLUTION WERE EXAMINED EXPERIMENTALLY. EFFECT OF SURFACTANTS (KINETIC PROMOTERS) IN INFLUENCING THE RATE OF MIXED HYDROGEN HYDRATE FORMATION USING GAS AND LIQUID PHASE PROMOTERS WAS ALSO INVESTIGATED. A RAPID METHOD OF METHANE HYDRATE FORMATION IN AN UNSTIRRED REACTOR CONFIGURATION WAS REPORTED USING STOICHIOMETRIC THF ALONG WITH REASONABLE METHANE GAS UPTAKE CAPACITY. MULTI SCALE HYDRATE FORMATION STUDIES PERFORMED SHOW
