Nickel-added magnesium hydrides have been thoroughly examined as H2 transporting media. They have great advantages concerning H2 content and storage cost. A serious disadvantage is their low packing density, so the container is inevitably bulky and heavy. To avoid this the transportation system could work simultaneously as a hydrogen purification system. To study the feasibility of such systems, the effects on the reaction of impurity gas both in the H2 and adsorbed on the surface of powder particles have been examined experimentally.
