Abstract: The development of hydrogen storage materials for use in light-duty vehicles is investigated in this paper, which is still a ways off until commercial use. High-pressure metal hydrides (HPMH) are specifically studied here, at varying temperatures. The transient plane source (TPS) technique is used to measure the thermal conductivity and specific heat of the prepared hydride materials. Porosity and density are also important physical factors to consider when dealing with the preparation and characterization of metal hydrides.
