2Mg(NH2)2–3LiH–LiBH4 composite exhibits an improved kinetic and thermodynamic properties in hydrogen storage in comparison with 2Mg(NH2)2–3LiH. The peak temperature of hydrogen desorption drops about 10 K and the peak width shrinks about 50 K compared with the neat 2Mg(NH2)2–3LiH. Its isothermal dehydrogenation and re-hydrogenation rates are respectively 2 times and 18 times as fast as those of 2Mg(NH2)2–3LiH. A slope desorption region with higher equilibrium pressure is observed. By means of X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) analyses, the existence of Li2BNH6 is identified and its roles in kinetic and thermodynamic enhancement are discussed.
