      Laves phase Ti1-xScxCrMn (x ≥ 0.1) alloys can be easily activated at sub-atmosphere and room temperature. Ti0.78Sc0.22MnCr alloy exhibits a ∼ 2 wt% reversible hydrogen storage capacity at 1 kPa-4 MPa and 293 K. Average ΔH of hydride formation of the Ti1-xScxCrMn alloys locates in the range of -17 – -33 kJ/molH2.

      In this study, three different TiFe-hydride reactors which are simple bare one, the one with cooling fins and the one with water cooling are designed and manufactured to investigate the effect of reactor design on the hydrogen storage rate and time at low pressures. The temperature variations and hydrogen storage rates of the reactors are investigated for the charging process and storage rates (H/M) of 3.13g/kg, 3.31g/kg and 4.35g/kg are obtained at 12 bar pressure respectively. Since the Reactor-3 has the maximum heat transfer, it has the maximum hydrogen storage rate in shortest time period.

      In this manuscript, the synthesis and characterization of a new alloy electrode family Mg49Ti6Ni(45-x)Mx (M = Pd and Pt) are reported. The Mg49Ti6Ni41Pd4 alloy achieved the best electrode performance among the investigated ones. The enhanced electrode performances displayed by these alloys are explained based on their microstructural features.

      A porous silicon (pSi) wafer with a hierarchical, nanoporous architecture and pure single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have been combined by electrophoretic infiltration to form a unique hybrid pSi-SWNT hydrogen storage system. Synergistic effects are observed for hydrogen storage from the hierarchical nanoporous Si and pure SWNTs architecture. By combining p-Si and SWNT, a higher hydrogen storage capacity and a lower desorption temperatures are achieved, compared to their parent materials, pure p-Si and SWNT.
