Noble-metal-free nickel–iron alloy nanoparticles exhibit excellent catalytic performance for the complete decomposition of hydrous hydrazine, for which the NiFe nanocatalyst, with equimolar compositions of Ni and Fe, shows 100% hydrogen selectivity in basic solution (0.5 M NaOH) at 343 K. The development of low-cost and high-performance catalysts may encourage the effective application of hydrous hydrazine as a promising hydrogen storage material.
