Melting Behavior and Thermolysis of NaBH 4 − Mg ( BH 4 ) 2 and NaBH 4 − Ca ( BH 4 ) 2 Composites

Abstract

The physical properties and the hydrogen release of NaBH4–Mg(BH4)2 and NaBH4−Ca(BH4)2 composites are investigated using in situ synchrotron radiation powder X-ray diffraction, thermal analysis and temperature programmed photographic analysis. The composite, xNaBH4–(1 − x)Mg(BH4)2, x = 0.4 to 0.5, shows melting/frothing between 205 and 220 °C. However, the… (More)
