Developments of Mg-based new composite materials for high-density hydrogen storage


Mg-based new composite materials, composed of Mg[NH2]2 and LiH, with more than 9 mass% of hydrogen have been successfully developed. Moreover, we have demonstrated that the composite materials can be conveniently produced by the industrial method (just a hydrogen treatment of mixtures of Mg- and Li-nitrides). The result was reported in the newspapers of Nikkei and Kahoku-Shimpo on June 29, and broadcast by NHK and Miyagi-TV.
