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 NaBH4were 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 Sievert's volumetric apparatus. It has been shown that low content of NaBH4and short milling time are beneficial for hydrogen sorption kinetics. © 2013, Hydrogen Energy Publications, LLC. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights.
