Magnesium hydride, as hydrogen storage material, meets the requirements such as high gravimetric hydrogen capacity (7,6 wt%), low cost and weight, abundance and H2 absorption/desorption cycling possibility. Given that the oxide additives show the good impact on desorption properties, mechanical milling of MgH2 with addition of 5, 10 and 15% wt. WO3 was performed. The microstructure and morphology of composites were analysed by XRD, PSD and SEM and correlated to hydrogen desorption properties which have been investigated by DSC. The results have shown that WO3 has a positive effect on the desorption kinetics as well as on the change of the desorption mechanism.
