Magnesium based hybrids have potential applications for hydrogen storage in the solid state. Although magnesium can store a high amount of hydrogen (7.6 wt.%), high temperatures (∼300 °C) and pressures (0.3–1 MPa) are required for the same. Additionally, the kinetics of absorption of hydrogen in bulk magnesium is slow. In the current work, Mg-LaNi5-soot hybrids ...

During the last decade, many scientists developed and deployed ‘’smart- pebbles’’ in fluvial (and other rapidly changing environments) in an attempt to monitor sediment dynamics. In parallel, Inertial Measurements Units (IMUs) have been tested in laboratory experiments focusing mainly on fluvial single grain entrainments and sort-term motions (simulating either costal or river hydrodynamics).
