Hydrogen absorption and desorption properties of C14 Laves NiTiZr-NiVNb and NiTiZr-NiVZr pseudo-binary alloys were investigated by using the Sieverts' apparatus, XRD and the hydrogen analyzer. The hydrogen capacity and the 50% hydrogen desorption temperature, T
, of the C14 Laves NiTiZr alloy is 1.5 (H/M) and 850 K, respectively. On the other hand, the hydrogen capacity of the C14 NiVNb alloy is 0.2 H/M. In the Ni(TiZr)
pseudo-binary system, the hydrogen capacity of the alloys is decreased with increasing x, but the 50% hydrogen desorption temperature is almost constant. The substitution of VNb reduces the hydrogen absorption capacity of the C14 Laves NiTiZr alloy. The hydrogen desorption temperature of Ni(Ti
)Zr alloy is reduced to 580 K without serious decrease of the hydrogen capacity with increasing x.
