Abstract The superconducting intermetallic compound Zr 2 Rh (CuAl 2 -type C16 tetragonal structure with T c ≈ 11 K) can be hydrided at room temperature and about 1 atm hydrogen pressure to give a composition Zr 2 RhH x ( x = 4.25 ± 0.25) without a change in crystal structure. This is the first report on the stabilization of a hydride phase with an appreciable hydrogen content. Results of X-ray diffraction, electrical resistivity, magnetic susceptibility and heat capacity are reported on the… CONTINUE READING
