Li$$_{4}$$FeH$$_{6}$$; Iron-containing complex hydride with high gravimetric hydrogen density

Saito, Hiroyuki; Takagi, Shigeyuki*; Matsuo, Motoaki*; Iijima, Yuki*; Endo, Naruki*; Aoki, Katsutoshi*; Orimo, Shinichi*

Li$$_{4}$$FeH$$_{6}$$, which has the highest gravimetric hydrogen density of iron-containing complex hydrides reported so far, is synthesized by hydrogenation of a powder mixture of iron and LiH above 6.1 GPa at 900 $$^{circ}$$C. ${it In situ}$ synchrotron radiation X-ray diffraction measurements reveal that while kinetics require high temperature and thus high pressure for the synthesis, Li$$_{4}$$FeH$$_{6}$$ is expected to be thermodynamically stable slightly below room temperature at ambient pressure; further synthetic studies to suppress the kinetic effects may enable us to synthesize Li$$_{4}$$FeH$$_{6}$$ at moderate pressures. Li$$_{4}$$FeH$$_{6}$$ can be recovered at ambient conditions where Li$$_{4}$$FeH$$_{6}$$ is metastable.
