The diffusion and site occupation of hydrogen in the monohydride phase of V1-xMox-H (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.1) were studied by means of 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Hydrogen atoms in VH 0.68 occupied the octahedral (O) sites in a body centered tetragonal (BCT) structure. The addition of Mo to V reduced the activation energy for hydrogen diffusion, EH, for the O sites. In V0.9Mo 0.1H0.68 hydrogen atoms occupied both the O and tetrahedral (T) sites, which was demonstrated by two components observed in the temperature dependence of the 1H spin-lattice relaxation time. The value of EH for the T sites was lower than that for the O sites. Hydrogen atoms in V0.9Mo0.1H0.68 diffused faster than those in VH0.68.
