Synthesis of core–shell NaBH4@M (M = Co, Cu, Fe, Ni, Sn) nanoparticles leading to various morphologies and hydrogen storage properties

Author affiliations

Abstract

Core–shell nanoparticles of sodium borohydride (NaBH4) coated with various metals have been successfully synthesised. The morphologies varied from spherical to cubic with a range of particle size distributions depending on the metal used. All core–shell structures show hydrogen storage reversibility with faster kinetics for NaBH4@Fe and NaBH4@Ni as compared to NaBH4@Cu.
