Abstract


  • A metathesis reaction between unsolvated NaB3H8 and

    NH4Cl provides a simple and high-yield synthesis of NH4B3H8. Structure

    determination through X-ray single crystal diffraction analysis reveals weak

    NHδþ- - -HδB interaction in NH4B3H8 and strong NHδþ—

    HδB interaction in NH4B3H8 3 18-crown-6 3THF adduct. Pyrolysis of

    NH4B3H8 leads to the formation of hydrogen gas with appreciable amounts

    of other volatile boranes below 160 C. Hydrolysis experiments show that

    upon addition of catalysts, NH4B3H8 releases up to 7.5 materials wt %

    hydrogen.
