The action of cobalt upon the characteristics of the nickel hydroxide electrode has been investigated by constant current, linear potential sweep and EDAX methods. It was found that cobalt raises the oxygen overpotential and promotes greater utilization of the active material, although major additions of cobalt were observed to lower the working potential of the electrode. It was also found that cobalt prevented any significant loss of electrode capacity when the system was poisoned with iron. 
Electrochemical studies of the nickel electrode with cobalt modification
The electrochemical behaviour of the paste-type nickel hydroxide electrode with cobalt-modified nickel foam was investigated using galvanostatic charge–discharge, electrochemical impedance
Modified Nickel Hydroxide Electrodes Effect of Cobalt Metal on the Different Polymorphic Modifications
Inclusion of Co metal as an additive during the preparation of pasted electrodes enhances the reversible discharge capacity of β-nickel hydroxide from 220 mAh g -1 of Ni to 400 mAh g -1 (theoretical,


Studies on the effect of cobalt addition to the nickel hydroxide electrode
Ni(OH)2 electrodes are known to take up potassium and lithium ions from electrolytes on cycling. The present study revealed lower levels of adsorption of potassium and lithium in the case of cobalt
The Catalysis of the Oxygen Evolution Reaction by Iron Impurities in Thin Film Nickel Oxide Electrodes
The effects of iron coprecipitated into thin film nickel oxide electrodes or introduced in the 25 weight percent electrolyte were studied by a combination of galvanostatic and open‐circuit decay
Studies concerning charged nickel hydroxide electrodes. VIII. The relative potentials of the β-/γ -nickel oxy hydroxide reduction processes
In this communication it is demonstrated that a partly chargedβ-Ni(OH)2/β-NiOOH couple can oxidizeα-Ni(OH)2 to theγ-phase. This observation is in accordance with the order of the reversible
