Superior MgH2 Kinetics with MgO Addition: A Tribological Effect

  • José-Ramón Ares-Fernández
  • Published 2012


The kinetics of hydrogen absorption/desorption in magnesium can be improved without any catalysis assistance and MgO was found to be more effective than the best catalyst reported so far, i.e., Nb2O5. Herein, a quantitative analysis of the hydrogen kinetics in magnesium modified with MgO was performed in order to identify possible rate controlling… (More)
