Sonication & Hydrogenation of Nano Nickel (video)

During this fuel preparation experiment we subjected 20 micron nickel powder to 12 hours of ultrasound bombardment at low temperature. During the course of the Sonication, the flask containing the nickel was alternately vacuumed and flushed with pure hydrogen. The purpose of this experiment was to remove surface oxides from the nickel and adsorb hydrogen into the metal matrix.
