Scientists create predictive model for hydrogen-nanovoid interaction in metals
In the end, however, they discovered that hydrogen trapping behavior in nanovoids—although apparently complicated—actually follows simple rules.
First, individual hydrogen atoms are adsorbed, in a mutually exclusive way, by the inner surface of nanovoids with distinct energy levels. Second, after a period of surface adsorption, hydrogen is pushed—due to limited space—to the nanovoid core where molecular hydrogen gas then accumulates.
Following these rules, the team created a model that accurately predicts properties of hydrogen nanobubbles and accords well with recent experimental observations.
