Improvement in the cycle life of LaB5 metal hydride electrodes by addition of ZnO to alkaline electrolyte


The improvement in the cycle life of a metal-hydride electrode, LaNi3.35Co0.75Mn0.4Al0.3, brought about by the addition of ZnO to the alkaline electrolyte has been investigated using measurements based upon in situ electrical resistance, corrosion, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and inductively-coupled… (More)
