Abstract

In this account the concept of using formic acid as a hydrogen storage material is presented. Catalytic reduction of carbon dioxide and heterogeneously catalyzed decomposition of formic acid to hydrogen and carbon dioxide are briefly discussed. In the main part the historic development and recent examples of homogeneously catalyzed hydrogen generation from formic acid are covered in detail.
