Stability, magnetic properties, electric field gradients and hyperfine fields of YCo5Hx compounds were investigated by using DFT based calculations. Two computational approaches were employed employed in the study-ultrasoft pseudopotentials with plane waves and all-electron FP(L)APW + lo method. It was found that H atoms prefer off-centered or centered octahedral sites. Enthalpies of formation for α→β transition were calculated. Satisfactory agreement was found between theoretical results and previous experimental value of the enthalpy of formation. It was also found that inclusion of spin-polarization reduces stability of the hydrides. Comparison of theoretical and experimental spin magnetic moments of different YCo5Hx compounds resulted in a reasonable agreement betwen present theoretical results and previous experimental and theoretical data. Magnetocrystalline anisotropy energy (MAE) was calculated for intermetallic compound YCo5. Reasonable agreement was found between MAE obtained in the present study and the corresponding theoretical and experimental values obtained in earlier studies.
