Ti-Based Amorphous Alloys and Composites as Potential Candidate Materials for Energy Applications
The hydrogenation characteristics and embrittlement behavior of Ti50Zr(50-x)Cux alloys (x=25,33,40) are reported. The hydrogenation kinetics decreased with increasing Zr-content. Though the Ti50Zr25Cu25 alloy showed the slowest kinetics, it absorbed large amount of hydrogen (~2.4 wt.%) and exhibited the best resistance against hydrogen embrittlement. The excellent characteristics of Ti- Zr-Cu alloys in hydrogen environment indicated that they are promising materials in future for energy applications.
