Hydrogen evolution and electrosorption on/in TiHg alloy have been investigated in acidic solution using cyclic voltammetry, open circuit potential transient, steady-state polarization, chronopotentiometry and electrochemical impedance measurements. Comparison has been made with pure Ti. Cyclic voltammetry and open circuit potential measurements show that hydrogen absorption into the electrode material occurs during proton discharge. The steady-state polarization curves in the course of positive and negative potential scans illustrate that the formation of absorbed hydrogen slightly improves the electrocatalytic properties of the electrode. The hydrogen diffusion coefficient into the bulk of...

Magnesium nanopowder (MgNP) of 17 nm average size was produced by planetary ball milling of Mg (φ=229 μm) with 10 wt% NaCl (φ=406 μm) for 50 h. NaCl was omissible by dissolution in saturated KOH. Partial oxidation of MgNP occurred, however, in presence of KOH. MgNP-NaCl mixture was, therefore, used for transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), x-ray diffraction (XRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and Sieverts equilibrium investigation. DSC analysis of ammonium perchlorate showed one endothermic and three exothermic reactions. MgNP did not noticeably affect on the initial endothermic reaction. But it decreased transformation temperatures of the...
