The effect of cycling on the absorption and desorption characteristics of the 80 wt% $AB_2$-15 wt% Mg-5 wt% Mm system was investigated. The material was made by Hydrogen Combustion Synthesis. The cycling experiment was performed at 298 K, 30 atm for 15 min. During the reaction time, the amount of absorption was fully desorbed. After the full activation, the hydrogen storage capacity was 1.57 wt% and the capacity was maintained until 50 cycles. And the reaction rate does not change with an increase in the number of cycles. This material has good durability and reversible feature.
