During mechanical milling under hydrogen atmosphere, hydrogen can be absorbed in amorphous boron, the amount reaching about 2.3 mass% (∼BH0.25) after 80 h milling. The trapped hydrogen can be desorbed only as molecular hydrogen in a temperature range of 330-1000 K. Three types of B-H interaction, i.e. physisorbed H2, B-H terminal and B-H-B bridge bonds, were suggested to account for the desorption behaviors.
