Alkaline-earth metals continue to receive growing interest, as they are used as low-cost and non-toxic alternatives to transition-metals in various organic transformations. As ionic character and bond lengths increase along the row in the order Mg2+2+2+2+, bond energies decrease along the same row, the corresponding metal hydrides are apt to the formation of insoluble metal hydrides[AeH2] (Ae=Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba) through Schlenk equilibrium in solution. Recently, a series of alkaline-earth metal hydrides stabilized by suitable ligands were discovered and characterized, and stoichiometric and catalytic reactions with small molecules were studied as well. In this paper, the recent progress in molecular alkaline-earth metal hydrides is reviewed.

Key words: alkaline-earth metals, metal hydride, reactivity, research progress
