Magnesium is mechanically activated in a high-energy planetary ball mill. Nickel is an effective catalyst for the synthesis of magnesium hydride by the reactive milling of magnesium powder under hydrogen atmosphere. Nickel-doped powder samples contain significantly more hydride phase than pure magnesium samples. The effectiveness of nickel is especially evident when one compares the amount of powder ultimately recovered from nickel-free and nickel-doped samples.
