The “thermodynamic forces” and energetics of intercalation of H2 nanophase of a high density into carbon-based nanostructures are considered. The hydrogen self-compression effect, at the expense of the free energy of association of the penetrating hydrogen atoms to the “captured” hydrogen molecules, is shown. The mechanisms of the extraordinary manifestation of both the hydrogen spillover effect, and the Kurdjumov-like effect are discussed.
