Abstract

The kinetics of formation of magnesium hydride from pure activated magnesium and from some indium containing magnesium alloys has been studied. The experimental data fit the rate equation [(1-2α/3)-(1-α)2/3] = Kt where α is the fraction of metal reacted at time t. The form of this rate expression indicates a three-dimensional diffusion-controlled reaction. The addition of small amounts of indium to magnesium lowers appreciably the activation energy of the process.
