Metal-Hydrogen Systems covers the proceedings of the Miami International Symposium on Metal-Hydrogen Systems. The book presents studies that discuss the possibility of exploiting hydrogen as an alternative energy source through metal-hydrogen systems. The first part of the text covers the general concerns with the system, such as getting and utilizing metal hydrides and developing hydrogen permeable metal membranes for the Li/LiH-process. The subsequent articles cover a much more specialized and specific topics, such as diffusion of hydrogen in metals; interaction of hydrogen with structure; hydride properties, formation, and utilization; and hydrogen storage. The book will be of use to scientists, engineers, and technicians who are involved in the research, development, and implementation of alternative energy technology.
