Abstract

Mg alloys show potential for utilization in a variety of applications. Among these is the area hydrogen storage. However, Mg-based H-storage materials suffer from poor kinetic properties and a high enthalpy of formation of the hydride phase. This problem has been somewhat alleviated by creating an ultra-fine grain structure, often produced via mechanical alloying. This work focuses the development of nanocrystalline Mg-based alloys through controlled devitrification of a metallic glass, and study of the resulting structures’ H-storage properties. Through proper alloying and processing, nano-crystalline (
