Effects of the 2 at.% Nb addition on the stability and hydrogen-induced internal friction behavior of the Ti34Zr11Cu47Ni8 multicomponent glassy alloy have been investigated. Thermal analysis indicates that the supercooled liquid region decreases by adding Nb, indicating that 2 at.% Nb addition reduces glass forming ability. On the other hand, there is no effect of the Nb addition on the hydrogen content dependence of the peak internal friction and the peak temperature. Nb has no attractive interaction with Ti and Zr but is attracted to Ni atoms. The contrasting effects of Nb addition are thus attributable to its alternative effects on the local atomic structure, i.e. no effect of Nb on the local atomic structure around Ti and Zr having high affinity with hydrogen but strong effect on the environment of Ni.
