Abstract

We report our theoretical and experimental studies on the thermodynamical stability and dehydriding property of Ca(BH4)2. The polymorphic crystal structures of Ca(BH4)2 have been investigated by the synchrotron powder X-ray diffraction measurement. Using the structural information, the first-principles calculations have been performed to investigate the fundamental properties of Ca(BH4)2. The dehydriding reaction is predicted to be
Ca(BH4)2→2/3CaH2+1/3CaB6+10/3H2
, which is supported by the thermogravimetric analysis and the pressure-composition (p-c) isotherm measurement.
