Metal hydrides form a large variety of compounds with diverse structures, bonding types, and chemical properties.
While some of these hydrides are only of purely academic interest – others are used on a large industrial scale.
A good review on the variety of hydrides is given in an article in Ullmann’s Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry1.
The industrial use of hydrides has been growing over the last decades and Albemarle has acquired broad know-how in the manufacture and handling of commercial quantities.
