The effect of hydrogen on the electronic, mechanical and phonon properties of LaMgNi4 and its hydrides for hydrogen storage applications

Baysal, M. B.
Density functional theory calculations are used herein to explore the effect of hydrogen on the electronic, mechanical and phonon properties of LaMgNi4 and its hydrides. The polycrystalline elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios and Debye temperatures are calculated based on the single-crystal elastic constants and Voigt-Reuss-Hill approximations. It is also found that all these materials are metallic behavior, ductile and anisotropic in nature. The mechanical anisotropy is discussed via several anisotropy indices and three-dimensional (3D) surface constructions. The effect of high temperature on the free energy, entropy, and heat capacity are also studied by using the quasi-harmonic Debye model. LaMgNi4 and its hydrides are found to be energetically, mechanically and dynamically stable. Also, they are thermodynamically stable and the order of phase stability is LaMgNi4H7 > LaMgNi4H4 > LaMgNi4H > LaMgNi4. In addition, the highest gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity is found to be 1.74 wt% for LaMgNi4H7. (C) 2018 Hydrogen Energy Publications LLC. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.


A comparative study for synthesis methods of nano-structured (9Ni-2Mg-Y) alloy catalysts and effect of the produced alloy on hydrogen desorption properties of MgH2
Pourabdoli, Mehdi; Raygan, Shahram; Abdizadeh, Hossein; Üner, Deniz (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-13)
9Ni-2Mg-Y alloy powders were prepared by arc melting, induction melting, mechanical alloying, solid state reaction and subsequent ball milling processes. The results showed that melting processes are not suitable for preparation of 9Ni-2Mg-Y alloy due to high losses of Mg and Y. Therefore, 9Ni-2Mg-Y alloy powder was prepared by three methods including: 1) mechanical alloying, 2) mechanical alloying + solid state reaction + ball milling, and 3) mixing + solid state reaction + ball milling. The prepared 9Ni-2...
Investigation of structural, electronic and lattice dynamical properties of XNiH3 (X = Li, Na and K) perovskite type hydrides and their hydrogen storage applications
Gencer, Ayşenur; Surucu, Gokhan (Elsevier BV, 2019-06-07)
XNiH3 (X = Li, Na, and K) perovskite type hydrides have been studied by using Density Functional Theory (DFT) and these materials are found to be stable and synthesizable. The X-ray diffraction patterns have been obtained and they indicate that all materials have the polycrystalline structure. The electronic properties have been investigated and it has been found that these structures show metallic character. The Bader partial charge analysis has also been performed. In addition, the elastic constants have ...

Eren, Enis Oğuzhan; Özkan, Necati; Devrim, Yılser (Elsevier BV, 2020-11-27)
© 2020 Hydrogen Energy Publications LLCThe development of a non-noble Co–N/MWCNT (MWCNT = multi-walled carbon nanotubes) electrocatalyst is achieved through the high-temperature pyrolysis method and successfully characterized by five-step physico-chemical analysis. By utilizing high-resolution analytical surface characterization methods, the chemical states of elements are determined, and the presence of Co-Nx sites is confirmed. ORR activity of a Co–N/MWCNT is found to be auspicious. The maximum number of ...
Experimental investigation of CO tolerance in high temperature PEM fuel cells
DEVRİM, YILSER; Albostan, Ayhan; Devrim, Huseyin (Elsevier BV, 2018-10-04)
In the present work, the effect of operating a high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell (HT-PEMFC) with different reactant gases has been investigated throughout performance tests. Also, the effects of temperature on the performance of a HT-PEMFC were analyzed at varying temperatures, ranging from 140 degrees C to 200 degrees C. Increasing the operating temperature of the cell increases the performance of the HT-PEMFC. The optimum operating temperature was determined to be 160 degrees C due to th...

Pd doped Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes were prepared via supercritical carbon dioxide deposition method in order to enhance the hydrogen uptake capacity of carbon nanotubes at ambient conditions. A new bipyridyl precursor that enables reduction at moderate conditions was used during preparation of the sample. Both XRD analyses and TEM images confirmed that average Pd nanoparticle size distribution was around 10 nm. Hydrogen adsorption and desorption experiments at room temperature with very low pressures (0...
