The effect of the max-phase Ti3AlC2 on hydrogen storage properties of Mg
The MAX-phase Ti3AlC2 was synthesized by sintering method. The study of sorption properties of the sample was carried out under conditions continuous heating. It was established that desorption of hydrogen begins at a temperature of ~ 210 °С. After complete desorption, the sample was re-heated in an atmosphere of hydrogen. It was found that Mg-5 wt% Ti3AlC2 composite begins absorb hydrogen at a temperature of ~ 76 °С. As a result of cycling, the temperature of desorption has shifted towards lower values ~ 186 °C.
