Ammonium borohydride – a promising hydrogen storage material?

This article is HOT as recommended by the referees. And we’ve made it free to access for 4 weeks.

Stabilization and destabilization of ammonium borohydrideHydrogen has been investigated for some time as a possible renewable energy source but its practical application has been limited by storage problems.   In this HOT article, Tom Autrey and co-workers have studied the stabilisation and destabilisation of ammonium borohydride with a view to its use as a promising hydrogen storage material.  The results suggest that ammonium borohydride could be stabilized by high pressure hydrogen or inert gas.

  1. Several reasons why businesses and organizations move to distributed databases include organizational and economic reasons, reliable and flexible interconnection of existing database, and the future incremental growth. Companies believe that a decentralized, distributed data database approach will adapt more naturally with the structure of the organizations. Distributed database is more suitable solution when several database already exist in an organization. In addition, the necessity of performing global application can be easily perform with distributed database. If an organization grows by adding new relatively independent organizational units, then the distributed database approach support a smooth incremental growth.
