Because of the growing world population and development of technology, the growing population's desire to achieve better life standarts is rising day by day. Correspondingly, there is more consumption and the amount of energy to meet the needs of production is increasing. Increasing energy demand causes the exhaustion of fossil fuels and also enforces to investigate for new and renewable energy sources' development. Although hydrogen energy is a clean energy there are some problems such as: storage, transportation and safely usage problems. Sodium borohydride is synthesized to overcome these problems. At the same time, controlled hydrogen release during dehydrogenation and its safe usage is become more important. Studies have been continued under the different reaction conditions to reach the best hydrogen yield in optimum conditions using various catalysts in this subject.
