Abstract : This invention involves solid compositions, stable at ambient temperatures, which generate hydrogen gas when heated to initiate the reaction between the components of the composition. The compositions comprise certain ammonium salts such as NH4Cl and complex hydrides such as LiAlH4 and NaAlH4 or certain hydrazine derivates such as N2H6Cl2 and complex hydrides such as NaBH4.
