Reversible electrochemical magnesium deposition and stripping from a Mg(BH4)2 electrolyte is reported by R. Mohtadi and co-workers in their Communication on page 9780 ff. High coulombic efficiency of up to 94 % was achieved. This Mg(BH4)2 electrolyte was used in the first rechargeable magnesium battery utilizing a borohydride.
