Hydride is a chemical compound in which hydrogen is combined with another element. It is a compound in which one or more hydrogen centres have nucleophilic, reducing, or basic properties in it. Three basic types of hydrides-saline (ionic), metallic, and covalent-may be distinguished on the basis of type of chemical bond involved. A fourth type of hydride, dimeric (polymeric) hydride, may also be identified on the basis of structure. Compounds containing hydrogen bonded to metals or metalloid may also be referred to as hydrides. Common examples are ammonia (NH3), methane (CH4), ethane (C2H6) (or any other hydrocarbon), and Nickel hydride (NiH), used in NiMH rechargeable batteries. Hydride compounds in general form with almost any element, except a few noble gases.
