Glossary: Thermal Stability

The thermodynamic stability of a compound. A stable compound will decompose at high temperatures, an unstable compound will decompose at lower temperatures. For reversible metal hydrides, high stability results in a low plateau pressure in the pressure-composition isotherm (PCI), low stability results in a high plateau pressure, for a given temperature.
