We have recently proposed a new method to design one-dimensional structures of MgH2 in the nano- and micrometer ranges by hydrogen-induced disproportionation of bulk Mg24Y5. The present study confirms the same behavior in hydrogenated Mg5Ga2 and Mg6Pd. Single-crystalline one-dimensional structures and microparticles of MgH2 are formed by hydrogen absorption and subsequent partial disproportionation of Mg5Ga2 and Mg6Pd. The MgH2 whiskers and particles grow with different morphologies for different alloying partners. Growth mechanisms are proposed in relation to the morphology and the chemical surface composition of original compounds.
