Transition-metal (TM)/V superlattices (TM=Cr,Fe,Mo) show certain peculiarities under hydrogen uptake. Here we investigate the influence of an induced magnetization of the V layers on the hydrogen dissolution by means of first-principles calculations. We find that below a certain value for the magnetic moment of the V host the hydrogen solubility is slightly reduced, whereas for larger moments the hydrogen dissolution becomes favored. The actual position of this transition depends on the tetragonal distortion of the V layers.
