Structural and hydriding/dehydriding properties of ZrMn2 -based Laves phase compounds (Zr1-xRx )Mn2 (R = Nd,Er) have been studied by the measurements of powder X-ray diffraction and hydrogen pressure-composition isotherm (PCT). The host compounds with single phase C14-type structure were prepared for the R=Nd system with x=0, 0.1, 1.0 and for the R=Er system with x =0, 0.1, while mixtures of ZrMn2 and RMn2 were obtained for the except compositions in (Zr1-xRx )Mn2 compounds. With increasing the Nd composition, dehydriding equilibrium pressure (Pd) of the Nd-system increases, whereas hydrogen content absorbed in the compound decreases. In the Er-system, on the other hand, the Pd is not dependent on the Er composition. The effect of substitution of Zr in ZrMn2 by Nd or Er on the hydriding/dehydriding properties is discussed.
