Boric acid-destabilized lithium borohydride with a 5.6 wt% dehydrogenation capacity at moderate temperatures

Author affiliations

Abstract

Boric acid effectively promotes the dehydrogenation of lithium borohydride due to the interactions between protonic and hydridic hydrogen. The simple mixture of LiBH4–(4/3)B(OH)3 can release 5.6 wt% hydrogen below 180 °C with only a trace amount of water, thus constituting a highly attractive single-use hydrogen storage material.
