Why are metallic hydrides called interstitial hydrides?What does interstitial mean? in this case.

Asked by Aksa Merin Saji 30th January 2014, 4:45 PM

Hi Aksa, Metallic hydrides are the hydrides of transition elements. In transition elements there are small empty spaces between the atoms. Hydrogen gas gets adsorbed in these empty spaces to produce non-metallic hydrides, hence they are also called Interstitial hydrides.
