Commercially pure titanium (CP-Ti) usually contains a few tens of ppm hydrogen. In order to clarify the fatigue behavior of CP-Ti, it is important to know the distribution of such hydrogen. In this study the distribution of hydrogen formed as hydride was analyzed by secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). The hydrides could be detected interior the grain and at the grain boundaries. On the basis of the results, the points to be paid attention for the investigation of fatigue strength are discussed.
