The development of safe, efficient, and economic hydrogen storage technologies is key for implementation of a hydrogen-based energy economy. In the search for high-hydrogen content materials, attention in the past decade has shifted to amides and borohydrides, two representative solid-state chemical sorption materials with high hydrogen capacities that had not been previously explored for hydrogen storage. A large number of new amide and borohydride systems have recently been developed that expand the material scope for hydrogen storage. This article reviews the current progress in amides and borohydrides with emphases on material design and kinetic improvement.
