A brief survey is given of the various classes of metal alloys and compounds that are suitable for hydrogen-storage and energy-conversion applications. Comparisons are made of relevant properties including hydrogen absorption and desorption pressures, total and reversible hydrogen-storage capacity, reaction-rate kinetics, initial activation requirements, susceptibility to contamination, and durability during long-term thermal cycling. Selected applications are hydrogen storage as a fuel, gas separation and purification, thermal switches, and sorption cryocoolers.

Additional Information:© 2002 Materials Research Society. Dr. Charles K. Witham of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory contributed to much of the work reported here. Dr. Witham died from injuries suffered in a bicycle accident on August 5, 2002. The field of hydride research is left poorer by this tragic loss of a young scientist. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is operated by the California Institute of Technology under a contract with the National Aeronautical and Space Administration. B.
