Light Metal Borohydrides/Amides Combined Hydrogen Storage Systems: Composition, Structure and Properties

Abstract

The implementation of future economy based on hydrogen-related energy needs an urgent development of efficient, safe, and economic solid-state hydrogen storage materials. During the search process for novel materials for storing hydrogen, research interests in the past decades have been intensively focused on light metal borohydrides and amides. They are two representative chemical complex hydrides with high hydrogen capacities. Recently, a large number of studies were reported on new borohydride/amide combined systems that expand the scope of hydrogen storage materials. Here, we review the interaction between light metal borohydrides and amides for storing hydrogen with especial emphases on synthetic strategies, structural, physical and chemical properties, which reveals a correlation between composition, structure and dehydrogenation properties and also provides general principle to the design of new combined systems with tailored functionality. This review also demonstrates the current progress on the dehydrogenation kinetic improvement of borohydride/amide combined systems.
