In this mini-review, selected contributions on the development of hydrogen storage systems based on small molecules using nanocatalysts for hydrogen generation will be described. The discussion is centered on the most applied compounds such as formic acid, metal hydrides, amine-boranes, alcohols, hydrocarbons, hydrazine and water. In addition, an overview of the most important aspects relating to the application of the metal nanoparticles in each reaction is also considered.
