Hydride at play  Mild-condition ammonia synthesis from N2 and H2 is a long-sought-after scientific goal and a practical need, especially for the intensively pursued “Green Ammonia” production using renewable H2. Here, Chen, Vegge and their co-workers find that ternary ruthenium complex hydrides Li4RuH6 and Ba2RuH6 are a new class of catalysts for mild-condition ammonia synthesis. The unique configuration and synergized scenario of the complex hydrides favor an associative activation and reduction of N2 towards NH3 formation (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41929-021-00698-8).
