Hydrogen storage and generation systems based on ammonia borane (NH3BH3) were considered. Data on the kinetics of H2 evolution during the catalytic hydrolysis and hydrothermolysis of NH3BH3 involving CuO, Fe2O3, and CuFe2O4 were presented. The products of the reduction of these oxides in the reaction medium were studied by XRD analysis. The catalytic hydrothermolysis of NH3BH3 in the presence of CuFe2O4 is a potentially highly efficient method for hydrogen production for fuel cells at an external heating temperature of 90°C.
