Summary

In this paper, we present recent results on the sorption behaviour of Mg and Mg-based alloys. The sorption kinetics of nanocrystalline Mg have been further enhanced by catalyst additions. Furthermore, different transition metals have been added to Mg to achieve a thermodynamic destabilization of the hydride, thus lowering the desorption temperatures.
