[1702.04807] Synthesis and Hydrogen Sorption Characteristics of Mechanically Alloyed...
Title: Synthesis and Hydrogen Sorption Characteristics of Mechanically Alloyed Mg(NixMn1-x)2 Intermetallics (Submitted on 15 Feb 2017) Abstract: New ternary Mg-Ni-Mn intermetallics have been successfully synthesized by High Energy Ball Milling (HEBM) and have been studied as possible materials for efficient hydrogen storage applications. The microstructures of the as-cast and milled alloys were characterized by means of X-ray Powder Diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) both prior and after the hydrogenation process, while the hydrogen storage characteristics (P-c-T) and the kinetics were measured by using a commercial and automatically controlled Sievert-type apparatus. The hydrogenation and dehydrogenation measurements were performed at four different temperatures 150-200-250-300oC and the results showed that the kinetics for both the hydrogenation and…
