Hydrogenation Properties of Mg-TiNi Hydrogen Storage Composites Materials

Article Preview

Magnesium and Magnesium alloys have been studied as one of the good lightweight hydrogen storage materials, but the materials have strong difficulties in the fabrication process of mass production until now. The Rotation-Cylinder Method (RCM) has been developed to fabricate magnesium-based composites with moderate rotation under normal atmosphere. Inthis study, the Mg-TiNi hydrogen storage composites materials were manufactured by RCM and evaluated their hydrogenation properties by a Sieverts-type automatic pressure-composition-isotherm (PCI) apparatus at 523, 573 and 623K. The hydrogenation properties of Mg-TiNi composites depended on the behavior of TiNi reinforcements. The formation of Mg hydride, MgH2, on 4h milling samples of Mg-10mass% TiNi intermetallics hinted to the catalytic behavior of TiNi reinforcements. In addition, the dehydriding profile at 573K revealed the two steps of plateau pressure, which were affected by the existence of multi hydride phases.
