Model calculations are presented of the adsorption of hydrogen in carbon nanotubes. Using a phenomenological interaction potential, we compute the low coverage thermodynamic properties, showing explicitly the quantum effects in the Feynman (semiclassical) effective potential approximation. The effects of interactions are evaluated with a quasi-one dimensional classical Lennard-Jones approximation.
