In this work, we present a new synthesis path and characterization results of the alanate, Ca(AlH_4)_2. We have synthesized for the first time, calcium alanate, directly from starting mixtures of AlH_3 and CaH_2 using mechanosynthesis. Ca(AlH_4)_2 has been identified using magic angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (MAS-NMR) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) measurements.
