Hydrogen Storage

Department: Letters

"Bottling Hydrogen in Solids" is about using boron hydrides as a storable form of hydrogen without any mention of the prohibitive quantity-production cost of these exotic compounds (C&EN, Jan 28, page 67). Remember the Defense Department's failed High-Energy Fuels program of the 1950s? It was entertaining, but frivolous, chemistry.
