Overview

Metal hydrides are of inestimable importance for the future of hydrogen energy. This unique monograph presents a clear and comprehensive description of the bulk properties of the metal-hydrogen system. The statistical thermodynamics is treated over a very wide range of pressure, temperature and composition. Another prominent feature of the book is its elucidation of the quantum mechanical behavior of interstitial hydrogen atoms, including their states and motion. The important topic of hydrogen interaction with lattice defects and its materials-science implications are also discussed thoroughly. This second edition has been substantially revised and updated.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A systematic description, rather than a reference, of the basic bulk properties of the metal-hydrogen system, ranging from macroscopic properties such as solubilities and phase diagrams to microscopic properties such as atomistic states and diffusion. Emphasizes the physics of how such properties actually come about. The specific topics are phase relations over wide ranges of pressures (up to several hundred GPa), temperatures (up to about 2000K), and composition (from pure metal to pure hydrogen); the site preference and quantum-mechanical states of interstitial hydrogen atoms; diffusion behaviors and mechanisms due to quantum-mechanical tunneling; and, briefly, the electronic structure that underlies the properties. For physicists and materials scientists. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
