The development of Mg nano-materials for hydrogen storage in the recent decade has been reviewed in this paper.It was shown the Mg nano-powders prepared by high-energy ball milling showed promising hydriding and dehydriding performance with the transition metal oxides and other types of hydrogen storage alloys(ABx)as the catalysts.
