High density ammonia storage materials

Abstract:

This Thesis considers the use of solid-state metal ammines as ammonia storage materials and endeavours to understand these materials on a fundamental chemical level. The ammines of LiBH₄, MgCl₂, MgBr₂, MgI₂ and Mg(BH₄)₂, are investigated. The structures of lithium borohydride ammines, Li(NH₃)nBH₄ with n = 1, 2, 3 and 4 are solved using X-ray and neutron diffraction, vibrational spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance, and first-principles calculations. The reversibility, bonding a...
