The Influence of Refractory Metals on the Hydrogen Storage Characteristics of FeTi-based Alloys Prepared by Suspended Droplet Alloying


The influence of the addition of refractory metals (molybdenum and tantalum) on the hydrogenation properties of FeTi intermetallic phase-based alloys was investigated. The suspended droplet alloying technique was applied to fabricate FeTiTa-based and FeTiMo-based alloys. The phase composition and hydrogen storage properties of the samples were investigated. The samples modified with the refractory metals exhibited lower plateau pressures and lower hydrogen storage capacities than those of the FeTi reference sample due to solid solution formation. It was observed that the equilibrium pressures decreased with the amount of molybdenum, which is in good agreement with the increase in the cell parameters of the TiFe phase. Suspended droplet alloying was found to be a practical method to fabricate alloys with refractory metal additions; however, it is appropriate for screening samples with desired chemical and phase compositions rather than for manufacturing purposes.
