The crystal chemistry and hydrogen storage properties of light metal borohydrides

Abstract:

This work examines various light metal borohydrides, particularly those formed from group II metals, with the aim of understanding their fundamental physical properties and improving their hydrogen storage ability. The structure of a new phase (γ) of Mg(BH4)2 is reported and the decomposition is fully characterized in a combination of diffraction and thermogravimetric studies. The bulk properties of γ-Mg(BH4)2 are compared to those of an SiO...
