Currently, researchers are giving much more attention to carbon allotropes for hydrogen storage applications. SWCNT-(Mg�Ti) composites have been synthesized by the ball milling technique. The XRD patterns confirmed the solid solution formation of Ti in Mg. The substitution of SWCNT in Mg�Ti intermetallic alloy increases the dislocation density to 8.2x10�3nm�2 and reduces the crystal size from 46 to 28 nm and lattice strain of 0.54 to 0.28 . The Raman analysis confirmed the existence of SWCNTs by presenting D and G bands and also confirmed the vibrations of Mg�Ti alloy. After the substitution of SWCNT, the exothermic peak reduced from 232 °C to 210 °C. The activation energy is also reduced after the substitution of SWCNT; it drastically reduces the activation energy to 66.59 kJ/mol for Mg67Ti29SWCNT4 alloy among the prepared samples. The impedance spectroscopy shows a higher diffusion coefficient of 5.2488x10�11 cm2s�1 for SWCNT substituted Mg�Ti alloy compared to pristine alloy. The hydriding/dehydriding studies were observed on the developed electrode material and Mg67Ti29SWCNT4 delivered a maximum storage capacity of 826 mAhg�1. © 2024 Hydrogen Energy Publications LLC
