    We have examined electrochemical properties and thermal stability of the amorphous Mg67Ni28Pd5 alloy produced by melt-spinning subjected to electrochemical hydrogen charge. In the cyclic life test, the discharge capacity of the alloy increases significantly with increasing cycle number and reaches 411 mA h/g at the 15th cycle. The hydrogen-absorbed amorphous alloy crystallizes through two stages of primary crystallization of Mg2Ni, followed by precipitation of Mg2NiH4 at the second stage. The completed crystallization temperature of the hydrogen-absorbed alloy increases by 65 K as compared with the as-solidified one. It is thus concluded that stability of the Mg-based amorphous alloy against crystallization increases by hydrogen absorption.
