Abstract

This Review focuses on the development of metal aminoboranes; it discusses their synthesis, structure, chemical characterization, and applications. The lightweight nature of the molecules, the simplified procedures for the synthesis of the target compounds, the reversibility of hydrogen storage and dehydrogenation, and in-depth research on the mechanism of the thermal decomposition are also discussed. A major challenge that still remains is how to combine the advantages of the compounds to produce a material that is not only able to release and absorb hydrogen under atmospheric conditions, but is also lightweight with a stable molecular structure. Finally, some future trends and perspectives in these research areas will be outlined.
