Abstract : This patent describes solid compositions which are stable at ambient temperatures and which, when heated to initiate the reaction between the components of the compositions generate pure or mixed gaseous hydrocarbons which may be isotopically labeled, or pure or mixed hydrogen isotopes, or combinations of the above. The compositions comprise certain ammonium salts such as N(CH3)4Cl or NH4Cl, and complex hydrides such as LiAlH4 or NaAlH4, or certian hydrazine derivatives such as N2(CH3)6Cl2 or N2H6Cl2 and complex hydrides such as NaBH4, wherein all components H and C stand for the various isotopes of these elements.
