We report nanosize-induced hydrogen storage in Ir, which does not absorb hydrogen in its bulk form. The mean diameter of the obtained Ir nanoparticles was estimated as 1.5 ± 0.5 nm by transmission electron microscopy. Hydrogen storage was confirmed by solid-state 2H NMR and hydrogen pressure-composition isotherm measurements.
