Isothermal hydrogen desorption of spark discharge generated Mg/NbOx and Mg/Pd metal hydride nanocomposites is consistently described by a kinetic model based on multiple reaction rates, in contrast to the Johnson-Mehl-Avrami-Kolmogorov [M. Avrami, J. Phys. Chem. 9, 177 (1941); W. A. Johnson and R. F. Mehl, Trans. Am. Inst. Min., Metal. Eng. 135,...

The thermodynamics of hydrogen absorption in Pd-capped Mg films are strongly dependent on the magnesium thickness. In the present work, we suppress such dependency by inserting a thin Ti layer between Mg and Pd. By means of optical measurements, we show that the surface energy contribution to the destabilization of MgH2 is negligible. The...
