TiCr2 with a body-centered-cubic (BCC) structure was synthesized successfully by mechanical alloying (MA) of elemental powders and mechanical grinding (MG) of as-cast ingots. The formation mechanisms of the TiCr2 were investigated using X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. The thermal stability and hydrogen ab/desorption kinetics were studied using a differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and a volumetric method. The results showed that the formation mechanisms of TiCr2 in mechanical alloying and mechanical grinding were different. Mechanical alloying is superior to mechanical grinding in processing TiCr2 alloy for hydrogen storage. D 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
