When sodium tetrahydroaluminate (NaAlH4) containing a small amount of titanium is heated, it takes in hydrogen gas, which can be released later by heating the solid again. Sodium tetrahydroaluminate has been studied as a prototype material for hydrogen storage, a key requirement for hydrogen-powered vehicles and other alternative energy applications.
