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

Answer:
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.
