In this work, phase behaviour measurements on the binary clathrate hydrate system cyclopentane + H2 are reported. Cyclopentane was found to be a better promoter than tetrahydrofuran for the synthesis of hydrogen clathrate hydrates. Besides phase equilibrium data also experimental information on the kinetics of formation and decomposition of the cyclopentane promoted hydrogen clathrate hydrate is reported in a pressure range from 2.5 up to 10.0 MPa. Although cyclopentane is a water insoluble promoter (contrary to tetrahydrofuran), it also forms structure sII clathrate hydrate with hydrogen.
