Synthesis and Properties of Nanostructured Mg2Ni-Based Compounds


Article Preview

Mg, Ni and Cu nanoparticles were prepared by hydrogen plasma-metal reaction method. Nanostructured Mg2Ni and Mg2Ni0.75Cu0.25 compound were successfully obtained using the metal nanoparticles. The synthesis mechanism, the structure and lattice parameter difference, and the hydrogen absorption behaviors of the two compounds were discussed.
