Core–shell nanoparticles of sodium borohydride (NaBH4) coated with various metals have been successfully synthesised. The morphologies varied from spherical to cubic with a range of particle size distributions depending on the metal used. All core–shell structures show hydrogen storage reversibility with faster kinetics for NaBH4@Fe and NaBH4@Ni as compared to NaBH4@Cu.
