The controlled fabrication of structures with nanoscale functionality is one of the most intensely studied topics in modern nanoscience. The crucial issue is to prepare structures with defined chemical composition as well as stable, but nanoscale morphology. A novel approach is the controlled additi...

Apart from MgH2, which is widely investigated for its hydrogen storage properties, alkaline earth metal hydrides are generally of no interest. The salt CaH2 reacts vigorously with water but is in contrast to other metal hydrides like LiAlH4 fully inert towards most organics. This is primarily due to...
