γ-Mg(BH4)2 was found to be a promising material for CO2 recycling (mainly to formate and alkoxide-like compounds). CO2 conversion occurs with unprecedented fast kinetics at 30 °C and 1 bar. A multi-technique approach allowed to attribute the superior performance of γ-Mg(BH4)2 to its large specific surface area.
