Hydrogen gas is generated by the electrolysis of liquid ammonia which has high hydrogen capacity of 17.8 mass%. The metal amides are used as supporting electrolytes to dissolve the amide ion in liquid ammonia. The results presented here indicate that liquid ammonia is promising as an energy medium for hydrogen storage and generation.
