Abstract : Results are given of a study into the behavior of lithium borohydride and its dioxanate up to 600 degrees. Lithium borohydride on heating liberated about 80% of its whole amount of H; the residue was a light-brown mass that gave off H under the action of H2O. The dioxanate of the borohydride, LiBH4.C4H802, lost a molecule of dioxane at 85 degrees with simultaneous liberation of H. The liberation of H became more intense above 400 degrees.
