Metal Hydrazinoborane LiN2H3BH3 and LiN2H3BH3𔅖N2H4BH3: Crystal Structures and High-Extent Dehydrogenation



Hui Wu, Wei Zhou, Frederick E. Pinkerton, Terrence J. Udovic, Taner Yildirim, John J. Rush


The first example of metal hydrazinoborane, LiN2H3BH3, and its hydrazine borane adduct LiN2H3BH32N2H4BH3 were synthezised with their crystal structures successfully determined. The metal hydrazinoboranes exhibit dramatically improved dehydrogenation over the pristine hydrazine borane (N2H4BH3) with nearly complete dehydrogenation at mild temerature range (50-225°C) and high purity of H2 release.
