  Hydrogen on tap: A homogeneous catalyst system   for the rapid and  quantitative solvolysis of ammonia borane   (AB) has been developed. The  iridium catalyst is remarkably   stable and can be reused with no  observable degradation in   activity. In the absence of solvent, the  mixture of   catalyst and AB efficiently generates hydrogen upon   exposure  to water vapor, thereby resulting in a system with   considerable hydrogen  storage capacity.
