How do you expect the metallic hydrides to be useful for hydrogen storage ? Explain

(1) The property of adsorption of hydrogen on tran-sition metals in metallic hydrides is widely used in catalystical reduction/hydrogenation reactions for the preparation of large number of compounds.
(2) Some of the metals like Pd, Pt can accommodate
a very large volume of hydrogen and therefore, can be used as its storage media. This property has high potential for hydrogen storage and as a source of energy.
