• reaction
  • Metal borohydride complexes can often be prepared by a simple salt elimination reaction: TiCl4 + LiBH4 → Ti(BH4)3(Et2O) in diethyl ether Some metal tetrahydroborates transform on heating to give metal borides. (wikipedia.org)
  • The principal products of the reaction are the borohydride of the alkali metal and the alkoxide of the alkali metal. (google.com)
  • Ruthenium or cobalt catalytic nanoparticles can be incorporated in the micro-disperse particles of sodium borohydride, which allows a rapid and complete reaction to occur without the problems associated with caking and scaling of the surface by the reactant product sodium metaborate. (osti.gov)
  • boron
  • The borohydride anion has a tetrahedral structure with boron in the center and the hydrogens located at the four vertices of the tetrahedron. (wikipedia.org)
  • As of June 30, 2010, many patents claiming to effectively achieve the conversion of sodium metaborate to sodium borohydride have been investigated but none have been confirmed-the current efficiency of "boron hydride recycling" seems to be well below 1% which is unsuitable for recharging a vehicle.

  • fuel cell
  • Sodium borohydride can already be purchased for as low as US$ 200 per kg from european eBay's sellers Sustainable development portal Glossary of fuel cell terms Amendola S.C., Onnerud P., Kelly M., Petillo P., Sharp-Goldman S. L and Binder M. (1999) 'A novel high power density borohydride-air cell', J. Power Sources, 84, pp. 130-133. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • Safe and easily handled on a large scale, sodiuim borohydride allows drug formulators to produce HIV medication in high volumes, at a low cost, to meet increasing global needs. (vertellus.com)
  • study
  • We study the thermodynamic stability at low temperatures of a series of alkali-metal-zinc double-cation borohydrides, including LiZn(BH4)(3), LiZn2(BH4)(5), NaZn(BH4)(3), NaZn2(BH4)(5), KZn(BH4)(3), and KZn2(BH4)(5). (epfl.ch)
