Hydrogenstorage for transportation applications requires high volumetric and gravimetric storage capacity. B–N compounds are well suited as storage materials due to their light weight and propensity for bearing multiple protic (N–H) and hydridic (B–H) hydrogens. This critical review briefly covers the various methods of hydrogenstorage, and then concentrates on chemical hydrogenstorage using B–N compounds. The simplest B–N compound, ammonia borane (H3NBH3), which has a potential 19.6 wt% hydrogenstorage capacity, will be emphasised (127 references).
