Abstract

Theories, experimental results and applications associated with hydrogen behavior in amorphous metals and alloys are reviewed. An emphasis is made on the potential use of these advanced materials for hydrogen storage technology. Therefore, several properties that are especially relevant for such applications are assessed. These include structural models for hydrogen occupancy, sorption characteristics, solubility, diffusion behavior and thermal stabilities. Hydrogen effects on the mechanical properties and fracture modes of glassy metals are also presented, and possible mechanisms of hydrogen embrittlement are discussed. Similarities and differences between hydrogen behavior in amorphous and crystalline metals and alloys are discussed in detail.
