Scientists are a step closer to ammonia borane-powered fuel cells thanks to a ruthenium catalyst that yields an unprecedented amount of hydrogen.
In theory, each molecule of ammonia borane, H3NBH3, can release three hydrogen molecules. This high hydrogen density makes ammonia borane an ideal fuel cell material.
