Dehydrogenation characteristics of Ti- and Ni/Ti-catalyzed Mg hydrides
The desorption capacity, thermodynamics, and kinetics of Ti- and Ni/Ti-catalyzed Mg hydrides were investigated using Sievert-type apparatus and differential scanning calorimetry. Based on analysis of the van’t Hoff equation and the Kissinger equation, the addition of Ti and Ni as catalysts has been found to play a key role in improving the thermodynamic and kinetic properties of MgH2 by decreasing the desorption temperature and the activation energy. A combination of Ti and Ni is a more effective catalyst than either Ti or Ni alone, suggesting the existence of a synergetic effect.
