The technique for hydrogenation of powder hydrogen-storage materials based on gas-phase hydrogenation method has been developed in this work. The using of developed technique allow prepare pure titanium powder samples with hydrogen concentration in range from 0.5 to 4 wt.%. It was showed, that pressure increasing from 0.5 to 2 atm at constant temperature 400 °C leads to decreasing of powder activation time from 140 to 15 s. Temperature increasing on 50 °C and more degrees leads to significant decreasing of powder activation time. Pressure increasing from 0.5 to 2 atm leads to increasing of hydrogen sorption rate and concentration in 1.27 and 1.19 times respectively. Temperature increasing from 400 to 550 °C leads to increasing of hydrogen sorption rate in 1.3 times, but decreasing of hydrogen concentration in 1.45 times, which associated with decreasing of hydrogen saturation limit. Optimal values of temperature (400 °C) and pressure (2 atm) for pure titanium powder hydrogenation have been determined.
