A theoretical investigation of hydrolysis of borides and borohydrides of alkali metals. (English. Russian original) Zbl 1202.82090

Russ. Phys. J. 52, No. 8, 795-801 (2009); translation from Izv. Vyssh. Uchebn. Zaved., Fiz. 2009, No. 8, 25-30 (2009).
Summary: A theoretical investigation of phase transitions of components of chemical reactions in the course of hydrolysis of borohydrides of alkaline metals \(\text{MBH}_{4} \, (\text M \, = \, \text{Li}, \, \text {NA}, \, \text K, \, \text {Rb}, \, \text{etc.})\) and dehydrogenation of borohydrides is performed; these reactions giving different hydrogen yields are compared. The percentage of the extracted hydrogen is estimated and the temperature dependence of its concentration is revealed. The phase transformation diagrams are constructed using the experimental data.
