The hypo-eutectic Mg-Mg2Ni system can be modified by trace elemental additions of Na which change the microstructure and the functional properties of the alloy. The modified microstructure results in improvements to the hydrogen storage properties. In alloys of optimal composition, it has been shown that the reversible storage of 6.5-7 wt% H2 is possible at a rate of reaction that is realistic for industrial applications. This research investigates the release of H2 in air under atmospheric pressure as well as under 0.2 MPa atmospheres of Ar, CO2, N2, and H2. The release kinetics were characterised using in situ crystallographic phase transformation analysis obtained by synchrotron Powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) at the Australian Synchrotron. The mole fraction of MgH2, Mg, Mg2Ni, and Mg2NiH4 was determined by Rietveld refinement using RIETAN-FP. It was found that the hydrogen release temperature largely depends on the atmosphere. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

A hydrogen vessel comprising a fluid communication port, an outer vessel and an inner compartment. The inner vessel contains a hydrogen storage material, such as a metal hydride. In one embodiment the inner vessel is mechanically isolated from the outer vessel. The separation between the outer and inner vessel provides a peripheral volume between each vessel. The peripheral volume about the inner compartment may be fluidly isolated from the inner compartment. The hydrogen storage unit further includes a fluid pressure device in communication with the peripheral volume; and a controller for controlling the fluid pressure device during desorption and absorption.
