Size reduction in Mg rich intermetallics via hydrogen decrepitation

2015-10-05
A study was carried out into hydrogen decrepitation of Mg rich intermetallics, namely Mg2Ni and Mg2Cu. These intermetallics are quite similar to each other except for the fact that Mg2Ni hydrides directly forming Mg2NiH4, whereas Mg2Cu when hydrided disproportionates into a two-phase structure. A total of ten sorption cycles was applied to the alloys and the resulting size reductions were monitored. The results showed that Mg2Ni decrepitate quite fast with cycling, the greatest size reduction occurring within the first three cycles. The size reduction in Mg2Cu, on the other hand, was quite sluggish. This was attributed to the disproportionation of the alloy which involve more extensive diffusion of the metallic species, counteracting some decrepitating effect of cycling due to ensuing particle sintering and growth.

Hydrogen storage in magnesium based thin films
Akyıldız, Hasan; Öztürk, Tayfur; Özenbaş, Ahmet Macit; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2010)
A study was carried out for the production of Mg-based thin films which can absorb and desorb hydrogen near ambient conditions, with fast kinetics. For this purpose, two deposition units were constructed; one high vacuum (HV) and the other ultra high vacuum (UHV) deposition system. The HV system was based on a pyrex bell jar and had two independent evaporation sources. The unit was used to deposit films of Mg, Mg capped with Pd and Au-Pd as well as Mg-Cu both in co-deposited and multilayered form within a t...
Direct synthesis of hydrogen storage alloys from their oxides
Tan, Serdar; Öztürk, Tayfur; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2011)
The aim of this study is the synthesis of hydrogen storage compounds by electrodeoxidation technique which offers an inexpensive and rapid route to synthesize compounds from oxide mixtures. Within the scope of this study, two hydrogen storage compounds, FeTi and Mg2Ni, are aimed to be produced by this technique. In the first part, effect of sintering conditions on synthesis of FeTi was studied. For this purpose, oxide pellets made out of Fe2O3-TiO2 powders were sintered at temperatures between 900 °C – 1300...
Direct synthesis of Mg-Ni compounds from their oxides
Tan, Serdar; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Öztürk, Tayfur; Karakaya, İshak (2010-08-13)
A study was carried out on the synthesis of Mg-Ni compounds as well as on the extraction of pure Ni and Mg from their oxides using the method of electro-deoxidation. The oxides sintered at 1200 degrees C were in the form of discrete phases NiO and MgO, suitably proportioned to yield Ni, MgNi2, Mg2Ni and Mg. The oxides were electrolyzed at 3.2 V in a eutectic mixture of CaCl2-NaCl solution maintained at a constant temperature (900-600 degrees C), using a graphite anode. The study has shown that NiO rich mixt...
Continuous synthesis of graphite with tunable interlayer distance
ÇAKMAK, GÜLHAN; Öztürk, Tayfur (2019-06-01)
A study was carried out to produce graphite with controlled interlayer distance synthesized from methane using hydrogen as modifying agent. The synthesis was carried out in radio frequency (r.f.) thermal plasma where the methane-to-hydrogen ratio varied systematically over a wide range. The synthesized materials were investigated in terms of structure, morphology and the interlayer distance. It is found that there is a critical fraction of hydrogen, around half of that of methane flow rate, up to which it i...
Hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane using intrazeolite cobalt(0) nanoclusters catalyst
Rakap, Murat; Özkar, Saim (2010-04-01)
Previously being used as highly active catalyst in the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride, intrazeolite cobalt(0) nanoclusters were also employed as catalyst in the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane (H(3)NBH(3)). Intrazeolite cobalt(0) nanoclusters were found to be active catalyst in this hydrolysis reaction of ammonia-borane providing 5450 total turnovers at room temperature before deactivation. The results of the kinetic study shows that the catalytic hydrolysis of AB is first order with respect to the catalyst ...
