Study of the Influence of the V in the Zr2Fe Alloy from Hydrogen Storage on Thermodynamic Properties
Hydrogen storage in its solid state is one of the main challenges for mobile and stationary applications. Some metal hydrides are potential candidates for energy storage. This is an experimental research, which represents a contribution to the study of Hydrogen storage in its solid state, by studying the influence of the proportional substitution of V for Zr in the stoichiometric ratio Zr2-XVXFe (X=0.0, 0.1 y 0.2). Results indicate that the synthesis process generates a multi-phase type microstructure, and the absorption and desorption kinetic is less than 5 minutes at room temperature, in line with the parameters established by the United States Department of Energy; however, it is clear that the desorption capacity decreases.
