Except where otherwise noted, data are given for materials in their standard state (at 25 °C [77 °F], 100 kPa).

Neodymium dihydride is an inorganic compound, with the chemical formula of NdH2, although it is an electride, and it is actually composed of Nd3+(e)(H)2. It is ferromagnetic.[1]

Chemical properties

Neodymium dihydride reacts with lithium borohydride to obtain neodymium tetraboride:[2]

NdH2 + 4 LiBH4 → NdB4 + 4 LiH + 7 H2
