Abstract: The LiBH 4 -NaBH 4 pseudo-binary system has been investigated by X-ray diffraction, temperatureprogrammed photographic analysis, and differential scanning calorimetry, in order to establish the phase diagram. The polymorphic orthorhombic-to-hexagonal phase transition of LiBH 4 was observed at 94 °C in samples containing NaBH 4 , i.e. 15 °C lower than for pure LiBH 4 , which indicates the dissolution of sodium into LiBH 4 . The formation of solid solutions was confirmed by powder X-ray diffraction measurements…
