Paper Title:
Evaluations of Hydrogen Properties on MgHx-Nb2O5 Composite by Mechanical Alloying
  Abstract

The most attractive way to storage hydrogen safely and economically is in metal hydrides. In particular, magnesium has attracted much interest since their hydrogen capacity exceeds that of known metal hydrides. One of the approaches to improve the kinetic is addition of metal oxide. In this paper, we tried to improve the hydrogen absorption properties of Mg. The effect of transition oxides, such as Nb2O5 on the kinetics of the Mg hydrogen absorption reaction was investigated. MgHx-Nb2O5 composites have been synthesized by hydrogen induced mechanical alloying. The powder synthesized was characterized by XRD, SEM, EDX, BET and simultaneous TG/DSC analysis. The hydrogenation behaviors were evaluated by using an automatic Sievert’s type PCT apparatus. Absorption/desorption kinetics and PCI of MgHx catalyzed with 5wt.%Nb2O5(as-received), 5wt.%Nb2O5(30min. milled) are determined at 423, 473, 523, 573, 623K.
