Abstract : The invention relates to a procedure for the preparation of pure beryllium hydride of composition BeH2, in a quantitative yield. This pure beryllium hydride can be utilized as a solid high energy propellant and in solid propellant formulations. It is prepared by the reaction of beryllium borohydride etherate, Be(BH4)2Et2O, with triphenylphosphine, (C6H5)3P. Beryllium hydride, BeH2, is freed from the by-product triphenylphosphino-borine, (C6H5)3PBH3 by extraction with benzene.
