Addition of nanosized Cr2O3 to magnesium for improvement of the hydrogen sorption properties

Abstract

The combination of (i) the catalytic effects of Cr2O3, (ii) reactive mechanical grinding (RMG), and (iii) nanosize particles allow a huge improvement in the sorption properties of magnesium. For short milling duration, the absorption kinetics were already as good as that reported for nanocrystalline (Mg+Cr2O3) mixtures. The desorption process is also improved but not in a similar manner. It is assumed that the RMG of nanosized particles of Cr2O3 results in the formation of some Cr atoms in the mixture which greatly influence the sorption behavior.
