Metal Hydroborates: From Hydrogen Stores to Solid Electrolyte

Radovan Černý, Fabrizio Murgia, Matteo Brighi
2021 Journal of Alloys and Compounds  
The last twenty years of an intense research on metal hydroborates as solid hydrogen stores and solid electrolytes are reviewed. It is shown that from the most promising application in hydrogen storage due to their high gravimetric and volumetric capacities, the focus has moved to solid electrolytes due to high cation mobility in disordered structures with rotating or tumbling anions-hydroborate clusters. Various strategies of overcoming the strong covalent bonding of hydrogen in hydroborates
