The study of the dehydrogenation process of TiH2 in aluminum foams produced by the powder metallurgy technique is essential to understanding its foaming behavior. Tin was added to the Al foam to modify the dehydrogenation process and stabilize the foam. A gradual decomposition and more retention of hydrogen gas can be achieved with Sn addition resulting in a gradual and larger expansion of the foam.
