Due to its affordable price, abundance, high storage capacity, low recycling coast, and easy processing, Mg metal is considered as a promising hydrogen storage material. However, the poor de/rehydrogenation kinetics and strong stability of MgH2 must be improved before proposing this material for applications. Doping MgH2 powders with one or more catalytic agents is one common approach leading to obvious improving on the behavior of MgH2. The present study was undertaken to investigate the…
