Nanoparticles of NaAlH4, LiAlH4 and LiBH4 were prepared by encapsulating their respective hydrides within carbon nanotubes by a wet chemical approach. The resulting confinement had a profound effect on the overall hydrogen storage properties of these hydrides, with NaAlH4 and LiAlH4 releasing hydrogen from room temperature, for example.
