In this review, we present an overview on metal amidoboranes, which have recently been considered as hydrogen storage materials for fueling of the low temperature fuel cells. We focus on amidoborane salts containing only metal cations and amidoborate anions. During the last decades, 19 new compounds from this group were described in the literature. We provide a summary of various physical and chemical properties of amidoborane compounds reported up to date. View Full-Text
