AbstractTo improve the balance of the electrical conductivity and mechanical strength for dilute Cu-Ti alloys by aging in a hydrogen atmosphere, the influence of aging temperature ranging from 673 K to 773 K (400 °C to 500 °C) on the properties of Cu-3 at. pct Ti alloy was studied. The Vickers hardness increases steadily with aging time and starts to fall at 3 hours at 773 K (500 °C), 10 hours at 723 K (450 °C), or over 620 hours at 673 K (400 °C), which is the same as the case of conventional aging in vacuum. The maximum hardness increases from 220 to 236 with the decrease of aging temperature, which is slightly lower than aging at the same temperature in vacuum. The electrical conductivity at the maximum hardness also increases from 18 to 32 pct of pure copper with the decrease of the temperature, which is enhanced by a factor of 1.3 to 1.5 in comparison to aging in vacuum. Thus, aging at 673 K (400 °C) in a hydrogen atmosphere renders fairly good balance of strength and conductivity, although it takes nearly a month to achieve. The microstructural changes during aging were examined by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and atom-probe tomography (APT), it was confirmed that precipitation of the Cu4Ti phase occurs first and then particles of TiH2 form as the third phase, thereby efficiently removing the Ti solutes in the matrix.

Effect of alloying on elastic properties of ZrN based transition metal nitride alloysKanoun, Mohammed; Goumri-Said, Souraya (Surface and Coatings Technology, Elsevier BV, 2014-09) [Article]We report the effect of composition and metal sublattice substitutional element on the structural, elastic and electronic properties of ternary transition metal nitrides Zr1-xMxN with M=Al, Ti, Hf, V, Nb, W and Mo. The analysis of the elastic constants, bulk modulus, shear modulus, Young's modulus, and Poisson's ratio provides insights regarding the mechanical behavior of Zr1-xMxN. We predict that ternary alloys are more ductile compared to their parent binary compounds. The revealed trend in the mechanical behavior might help for experimentalists on the ability of tuning the mechanical properties during the alloying process by varying the concentration of the transition metal. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
Cu boosting the collaborative effect of Ni and H+ in alloyed NiCu/saponite catalysts for hydrogenolysis of glycidolGebretsadik, Fiseha Bogale; Ruiz-Martinez, Javier; González, María Dolores; Salagre, Pilar; Cesteros, Yolanda (Dalton transactions (Cambridge, England : 2003), Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2021-06-14) [Article]The effect of copper on various acid saponite supported Ni-Cu bimetallic catalysts, prepared with different Ni : Cu ratios, was studied for the liquid phase hydrogenolysis of glycidol on a batch reactor at 393 and 453 K. Characterization of the catalysts showed that Ni and Cu are in close contact as the XRD measurements evidenced the formation of an alloy. H2 chemisorption results revealed that the measured metallic area progressively decreased with an increase in the wt% of copper. In the presence of high metal activity (higher Ni wt%), the formation of 1,2-propanediol (1,2-PD) outweighed, while acid activity led to the formation of dimerization and oligomerization products. The addition of Cu and the increase of the reaction temperature decreased the diol formation but boosted the 1,3-PD/1,2-PD ratio. This could be explained by an improvement of the collaborative effect between the metal Ni and the H+ of the saponite. Therefore, the presence of an appropriate amount of Cu allowed the control of the hydrogenation capacity of Ni and enhanced the collaborative effect of Ni and H+ favouring the formation of 1,3-propanediol with respect to 1,2-propanediol.
Large barocaloric effect with high pressure-driving efficiency in hexagonal MnNi0.77Fe0.23Ge alloyZeng, Qingqi; Shen, Jianlei; Liu, Enke; Xi, Xuekui; Wang, Wenhong; Wu, Guangheng; Zhang, Xixiang (arXiv, 2021-06-05) [Preprint]The hydrostatic pressure is expected to be an effective knob to tune the magnetostructural phase transitions of hexagonal MMX alloy. In this study, magnetization measurements under hydrostatic pressure were performed on a MMX martensitic MnNi0.77Fe0.23Ge alloy. The magnetostructural transition temperature can be efficiently tuned to lower temperatures by applying moderate pressures, with a giant shift rate of -151 K GPa-1. A temperature span of 30 K is obtained under the pressure, within which a large magnetic entropy change of -23 J kg-1 K-1 in a field change of 5 T is induced by the mechanical energy gain due to the large volume change. Meanwhile, a decoupling of structural and magnetic transitions is observed at low temperatures when the martensitic transition temperature is lower than the Curie temperature. These results show a multi-parameter tunable caloric effect that benefits the solid-state cooling.
