A negative electrode consisting of Laves-phase alloy particles with a composition of Zr 0.9 Ti 0.1 Ni 1.1 Co 0.1 Mn 0.5 V 0.2 Cr 0 . 1 requires more than 20 activation cycles to attain a nominal discharge capacity (ca. 350 mAh g -1 ). The activation cycles could be reduced to several times only by mechanical modification with planetary ballmilling and further shortened by mechanochemical modification using a small amount of Al or Mg powder as a modifier. Such mechanical and mechanochemical… CONTINUE READING
