Hydrogen Storage Properties of Mg76Ti12Ni12-xCrX(x=0,3,6,9) Alloys by Mechanical Alloying
Mg76Ti12Ni12-xCrx(x=0,3,6,9) alloys were synthesized by mechanical alloying(MA) approach and hydrogen storage properties of the alloys were investigated by X-ray diffraction, thermal analysis and pressure-composition isotherm measurement. It is found that Ti2Ni phase and Mg2Ni phase exist as the main phases in Mg76Ti12Ni12-xCrx(x=0,3,6,9) alloys. The Mg76Ti12Ni12-xCrx(x=0,3,6,9) alloys exhibit the hydrogen storage capacity of 4.61,4.30,4.21 and 4.12wt%, and the decomposition enthalpies of the alloy hydrides are 928.4, 898.3, 831.2 and 851.4J/g H2, respectively. Mg76Ti12Ni6Cr6 alloy shows small hysteresis and fast hydrogen absorption rate. Proper Cr content can improve the performance of the Mg76Ti12Ni12-xCrx(x =0,3,6,9) alloys.
