Hydrogen absorption and desorption properties of C14 Laves NiTiZr-NiVNb and NiTiZr-NiVZr pseudo-binary alloys were investigated by using the Sieverts' apparatus, XRD and the hydrogen analyzer. The hydrogen capacity and the 50% hydrogen desorption temperature, Td, of the C14 Laves NiTiZr alloy is 1.5 (H/M) and 850 K, respectively. On the other hand, the hydrogen capacity of the C14 NiVNb alloy is 0.2 H/M. In the Ni(TiZr)1−x(VNb)x pseudo-binary system, the hydrogen capacity of the alloys is decreased with increasing x, but the 50% hydrogen desorption temperature is almost constant. The substitution of VNb reduces the hydrogen absorption capacity of the C14 Laves NiTiZr alloy. The hydrogen desorption temperature of Ni(Ti1−xVx)Zr alloy is reduced to 580 K without serious decrease of the hydrogen capacity with increasing x.
