The hydrogen-release behavior of the molten salt FLiNaK containing directly synthesized 0.1 wt% nano-Ti powder was investigated. Hydrogen release was faster at higher temperatures, and the volume of released hydrogen from FLiNaK was significantly higher than that from pure FLiNaK. However, the ratio of released H/Ti in FLiNaK was smaller than that in μm-Ti powder.
