Using the data on the superconducting critical temperature ($T_{C}$) for a number of metal hydrides, we found a rule that makes it possible to predict the maximum $T_{C}$ based only on the information about the electronic structure of metal atoms. Using this guiding principle, we explored the hydride systems for which no reliable information existed, predicted new higher hydrides in the K-H, Zr-H, Hf-H, Ti-H, Mg-H, Sr-H, Ba-H, Cs-H, and Rb-H systems at high pressures, and calculated their $T_{C…
