hydrogen embrittlement of metals.

Loss of ductility of a metal due to chemical or physical change See Acid Embrittlement and Hydrogen Embrittlement
{i} process of becoming brittle; loss of flexibility; hardening and weakening of a solid substance due to age or exposure to extreme conditions
Reduction in ductility or toughness or both due to a chemical or physical change
A material's loss of malleability due to chemical treatment or physical change
the loss of flexibility or elasticity of a material The transition of a flexible material to a brittle state
A metal condition that causes the metal to suffer a severe loss of ductility and/or toughness Titanium alloys are susceptible to embrittlement from several sources including hydrogen pickup (from water vapor, pickling acids, and hydrocarbons), and liquid metal embrittlement (liquid cadmium, mercury and silver)
