Hydrogen storage on chemical hydrogen storage materials provides the feasibility to meet and exceed the goals of the DOE Grand Challenge in hydrogen storage for on-board fuel cell applications. The feasibility of using ammonia borane and polyammonia borane as reversible hydrogen storage materials was studied. This family of molecules is promising given capacity for high volumetric storage densities, nearly > 12 wt % hydrogen. Hydrogen uptake and release is near thermoneutral. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 227th ACS National Meeting (Anaheim, CA 3/28/2004-4/1/2004).
