Abstract

The novel complex hydride YLiFeH6 with the Fe-H complex anion ([FeH6]4-) was synthesized by hydrogenation of YFe 2 together with additional Li. Li adjusts the original imbalanced charge between Y3+ and [FeH6]4- by donating an electron to convert into Li+ during the hydrogenation, resulting in the formation of the well charge-balanced state of Y3+Li +[FeH6]4-.
