Metallic hydrides are hydrogen deficient and they don't hold the law of constant composition.it is established that hydrides of nickel, palladium, and Ce have lattice different where hydrogen occupies the interstitial position in the lattices allowing further absorption of hydrogen on these metals. Some of the metals like Pd and Pt accommodate a very large volume of hydrogen and therefore, can be used for hydrogen storage.
