Structure and dynamics of ammonium borohydride

Author affiliations


Synchrotron powder X-ray diffraction, ab initio molecular dynamics calculations and solid state 1H and 2H NMR are used to refine the structure of crystalline NH4BH4 including H atoms. Rapid reorientations of both ions mean that on average half-hydrogens occupy the corners of a cube around B or N.
