Complex hydrides have been regarded as potential candidates for advanced hydrogen storage media. Currently, two effective methods, 'partial substitution by elements with larger electronegativities' and 'preparation of appropriate combinations', are investigated with the primary aim of destabilizing the complex hydrides for promoting their dehydriding reactions. On perovskite hydrides, fundamental properties such as formation abilities and dehydriding mechanisms are studied experimentally. We have then confirmed the occurrence of the dehydriding (and also rehydriding) reactions of the perovskite hydrides, similar to the reactions of the complex hydrides.
