Keywords

  • Hydrogen embrittlement, critical technical issues - associated with oxide film formation and composition
  • Nanocrystalline and quasicrystalline metal membranes - for hydrogen separation
  • Pd, the most widespread metal for hydrogen separation membranes - due to high permeability to hydrogen at high temperatures
  • Preparation and characterisation of nanocrystalline and quasicrystalline alloys - by planar flow casting for metal membranes
  • Properties and preparation of nanocrystalline and quasicrystalline metals - nanocrystalline metals, of single or multiphase polycrystals with nanoscale grain sizes
  • Quasicrystalline metals, and essentially well ordered crystalline structure - in a nonperiodic and nonrepeating fashion
  • Search for improved Pd-based membranes - or non Pd-based membranes, comprising high-performance alloys with cheaper constituents
  • Separation of hydrogen, metal membranes - promising candidate from other choices
  • Ti-Zr-Ni-based alloy membrane materials
  • Utilisation of PFC, for fabrication of alloys - where Pd is a major constituent exist
