hydride

any compound of hydrogen with another element, including ionic compounds such as sodium hydride (NaH), covalent compounds such as borane (B2H6), and the transition metal hydrides formed when certain metals, such as palladium, absorb hydrogen

hydride

[′hī‚drīd]
(inorganic chemistry)
A compound containing hydrogen and another element; examples are H2S, which is a hydride although it may be properly called hydrogen sulfide, and lithium hydride, LiH.
