Hydrogen in Metallic Nanostructures


Article Preview

Features of hydrogen nanostructure synthesis are described as applied to metals (Mg and Pd) and intermetallics (Mg2Ni, FeTi and LaNi5). Attention is focused on the high-energy ball milling as a universal method for hydrogen nanostructure preparation. The effect of crystallite size, absorption/desorption properties of Pd - H2, Mg2Ni - H2, TiFe - H2 and Mg - H2 systems are characterized in detail. Structural features and some physical properties of nanohydrides studied by different independent characterization methods are considered.
