The diammoniate of diborane: crystal structure and hydrogen release

Author affiliations

Abstract

[(NH3)2BH2]+[BH4] is formed from the room temperature decomposition of NH4+BH4, via a NH3BH3 intermediate. Its crystal structure has been determined and contains disordered BH4 ions in 2 distinct sites. Hydrogen release is similar to that from NH3BH3 but with faster kinetics.
