SINOPSIS

Titanium hydride (TiH2) is used in the fields of pyrotechnics, metallurgy, and hydrogen (H2) storage. Different pyrotechnic compositions and flash powders contain mixtures of TiH2 with potassium perchlorate. Because of its high H2 content (about 4%), TiH2 is also used as a H2 storage medium. Hydrides offer a compact H2 storage option, minimizing the H2 effective volume and improving the H2 storage safety. The traditional method of TiH2 production consists of a long exposure of Ti metal to H2 at elevated temperature and pressure. This paper describes a new thermal explosion method for production of TiH2, as well as a parametric investigation using the new experimental technique to evaluate the H2 content in the resulting hydride.
