Abstract. The results of the study (by methods of thermodynamic analysis of a number of the most cited experimental and theoretical data) characteristics of the thermal stability of hydrogenated mebrane and epitaxial graphenes, as well as the atomic mechanisms of the processes of hydrogention and dehydrogenation, are presented. A discrepancy of some theoretical data for graphane with the results of thermodynamic "verification" is shown. It is considered the rate-limiting stages and atomic mechanisms of processes of atomic hydrogen chemisorption with membrane and epitaxial graphenes, relevance to the problem of the efficient and safety storage of hydrogen in the fuel cell powered ecological vehicles.

Keywords: free-standing graphene membranes, graphanes, epitaxial graphenes, hydrogenation and dehydrogenation, the atomic mechanisms, the thermal stability characteristics, the hydrogen on-board storage problem
