Description

General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.

Application

Reactant for:
• Reactive hot-pressing synthesis of Zr2SC ceramics
• Synthesis of Mg-TM hydrides for hydrogen storage
• Synthesis of nanocrystal ceramic composites by mechanical alloying
• Measurement of minimum ignition energies of dust clouds
• The oxidation of metal hydrides with molecular oxygen

Zirconium(II) hydride (ZrH2) can be used as a precursor for:
•  Reactive hot-pressing synthesis of Zr2SC ceramics by displacement reaction with the mixture of ZrC and ZrS2.,· 
•  The synthesis of Mg-Zr hydrides by treating with MgH2 for hydrogen storage.       
•  The preparation of layer structured β-zirconium nitride chloride (ZrNCl) by reacting with NH4Cl.

Zirconium(II) hydride (ZrH2) can be used for the preparation of zirconium diboride (ZrB2) by the reactive plasma sintering process. It can be used as a neutron shielding material, which finds potential usage in hydrogen storage.
