Sodium borohydride (NaBH4) is the most commonly available borohydride, synthesized by reacting methylborate with sodium hydride in mineral oil. It is employed as a precursor for producing other metal borohydrides. Various approaches for qualitative and quantitative monitoring of sodium borohydride have been explained. The potential of NaBH4 to store as well as generate hydrogen for fuel cells has been investigated.
