Effects of Ni-loading contents on dehydrogenation kinetics and reversibility of Mg2FeH6


Although Mg2FeH6 has drawn significant attention for storing hydrogen, its sluggish kinetics during hydrogenation and poor reversibility hinder practical uses. In this work, the replacement of Fe atoms in Mg2FeH6 with Ni atoms is attempted and the material properties are investigated. A detailed study of the de/rehydrogenation kinetics and reaction mechanisms of the Ni-doped Mg2FeH6 is carried out. The effects of Ni-loading contents on kinetic properties and behaviors as well as reversibility and reaction pathways are characterized. In addition, the crystal structure of a new Ni-substituted Mg2FeH6 phase is confirmed.
