Title: Solid state synthesis of metal borohydrides

Abstract

A method for obtaining solid-state metal borohydrides without toxic precursors and expensive solvents includes dry mixing of metal hydrides and metal polyhydro-closo-borate starting materials. High pressure and heating is also used in the method. These materials can be used for hydrogen storage, general reducing agents, organic synthesis, wastewater treatment, and paper pulp bleaching.
