Literary linguistics: Open Access research in English language

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by English Studies at Strathclyde. Particular research specialisms include literary linguistics, the study of literary texts using techniques drawn from linguistics and cognitive science.

The team also demonstrates research expertise in Renaissance studies, researching Renaissance literature, the history of ideas and language and cultural history. English hosts the Centre for Literature, Culture & Place which explores literature and its relationships with geography, space, landscape, travel, architecture, and the environment.

Abstract

The effect of additives Ti, Pd and Zr on the rate of hydrogen desorption from MgH2 is investigated using high-pressure differential scanning calorimetry. Van't Hoff analysis as well as X-ray powder diffraction measurements confirm that no new intermetallic phases are formed in these systems but enhanced dehydriding kinetics are obtained in the presence of Pd and Zr. For the Mg-Zr composite, Zr precipitates are formed throughout the material on heating to 500 °C but these do not grow with further thermal cycling. The desorption rate for all the composites was found to increase with temperature as well as pressure difference between experimental and equilibrium pressures. A value of 114 ± 4 kJ mol−1 was obtained for the activation energy for dehydriding of the Mg-Ti-Pd composite.
