Approaching the entanglement problem of kinetics with thermodynamics in reversible metal hydride desorption reactions by means of a hyperbola template such as the Michaelis-Menten curve renders a closed solution for their unravelling possible, revealing profound insight of general significance into both, the structure of the rate-limiting thermodynamic factor and the nature of experiment-specific first-order Arrhenius kinetics. As by-product an alternate method of extreme simplicity for modelling transient behaviour of reversible metal hydride tanks is obtained. This paper concludes a series of works concerned with objectively approaching metal hydride soprtion reaction kinetics.
