|Title:||Synthesis And Hydrogen Sorption Properties Of Mg 2feh 6-mgh 2 Nanocomposite Prepared By Reactive Milling|
Jorge Jr. A.M.
|Abstract:||The complex hydride Mg 2FeH 6 is an interesting material for hydrogen storage due to its high gravimetric hydrogen capacity as well as for having the highest known volumetric hydrogen density - 150 kg m -3. Several papers have recently reported its synthesis from the stoichiometric precursors 2Mg-Fe or 2MgH 2-Fe through sintering process and ball milling under argon or hydrogen atmosphere. However, regardless of processing conditions, a remaining iron always was identified by X-rays diffraction, which resulted in a lower hydrogen storage capacity. In the present paper, the Mg 2FeH 6-MgH 2 nanocomposite was successfully synthesized through high-energy ball milling from 3Mg-Fe mixture under hydrogen atmosphere at room temperature. After the ball milling, X-rays diffraction patterns showed that the iron was kept to a minimum, which was also confirmed by simultaneous thermal analysis of differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetry. The gravimetric density of the ball milled 3Mg-Fe is more than 5 wt.% of hydrogen. In the case of 2Mg-Fe, processed in the same condition, the measured hydrogen capacity was 3.5 wt.%. The hydrogen sorption kinetics analyses were performed in a Sievert's apparatus in temperatures ranging from 250 °C to 350 °C. Enhanced hydrogen sorption kinetics was observed for these 3Mg-Fe milled powders in comparison with the 2Mg-Fe ones. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
