Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Berlouis, L.E.A. and Hall, P.J. and Mackinnon, A.J. and Wark, Alastair and Manuelli, D. and Gervais, V. and Robertson, J.E. (1997) The decomposition of electrochemically loaded palladium hydride : a thermal analysis study. Journal of Alloys and Compounds, 253-254. pp. 207-209. ISSN 0925-8388

Palladium samples electrochemically loaded with hydrogen have been examined in terms of their desorption characteristics using the thermal analysis methods of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The temperature of maximum desorption is shown to depend on the H:Pd ratio n when loading was carried out at current densities iD≤2 mA cm−2. The molar desorption enthalpy ΔHM, derived from the DSC and TGA data as a function of n (0.48-0.9), was found to be in good agreement with literature values at lower n but deviated at higher n.
