      Thermodynamic data of the LiBH4 compound are reviewed and   critically assessed. On the basis of literature data of heat   capacity, heat of formation, temperature and enthalpy of phase   transitions, a CALPHAD optimized Gibbs energy function is derived   for the condensed phases i.e. orthorhombic and hexagonal solid   phases and the liquid phase. Considering hydrogen as an ideal gas   phase, the thermodynamics of decomposition reactions of LiBH4 is   calculated, showing good agreement with existing experimental   data.
