1. I have been hoping to work on the problem of using NH3 as an energy storage medium --

Much more easily storable and transportable than H2, as pointed out. Of course you can't burn it directly unless you want to destroy the world with NOx (though that's how the X-15 did it) but it should be fine in fuel cells -- only output would be N2 + H2O. But you'd really need to find a more efficient ammonia synthesis, which of course everybody and his brother is hoping to discover -- it's the modern chemist's equivalent of the search for the Philosopher's Stone, only one based on facts, not mysticism.

Of course, this is actually quite a bit outside my specialty, and I'm sidelined anyway -- so probably have to watch someone else collect those laurels.
