Abstract

Boranes (or boron hydrides)3 are known for their capacity of hydrogen storage since the 1950s, at least for the borohydrides, but it is since the early 2000s, that is 50 years after the discovery of the most known hydrogen storage boron hydride, namely sodium borohydride, that these compounds have attracted much attention with respect to the potential as hydrogen storage materials they have for technological applications. Today, boron hydrides seem to have a major role to play in the hydrogen economy we are intensely trying to develop. The present chapter is devoted to these hydrides and more generally to the boron compounds, which are listed and briefly discussed in a first section. It is showned that only the boron hydrides are promising candidates for storing hydrogen. The boron hydrides, and especially the borohydrides, ammoniaborane and the newly developed metal amidoboranes, are more largely discussed in terms of their gravimetric hydrogen storage capacities. The safety aspect is also, besides, tackled. Actually, this chapter is an introduction to the next chapters, dealing more in details with the presently discussed boron hydrides.
