The hydrogen sorption properties of magnesium hydride-sodium borohydride composites prepared by means of high-energy ball milling under Ar atmosphere were investigated. Mutual influence of milling time and the content of NaBH4 were studied. Microstructural and morphological analyses were carried out using X-ray Diffraction (XRD), laser scattering measurements and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), while kinetic analysis and cycling were performed in a Sieverts volumetric apparatus. It has been shown that low content of NaBH4 and short milling time are beneficial for hydrogen sorption kinetics. Copyright (C) 2013, Hydrogen Energy Publications, LLC. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
