      Abstract: A review; the present Minireview   covers the formation and the structural characterization of noble   metal carbonyl and hydrido carbonyl complexes, with particular   emphasis on ruthenium complexes using formic acid as a carbonyl   and hydride source. The catalytic activity of these   organometallic compds. for the decarboxylation of formic acid, a   potential hydrogen storage material, is also reviewed. In addn.,   the first prepn. of [Ru4(CO)12H4] from RuCl3 and formic acid as   well as the catalytic activity of [Ru4(CO)12H4] for the decompn.   of formic acid to hydrogen and carbon dioxide are presented.
