Title: Nickel anode electrode

Abstract

A nickel anode electrode fabricated by oxidizing a nickel alloying material to produce a material whose exterior contains nickel oxide and whose interior contains nickel metal throughout which is dispersed the oxide of the alloying material and by reducing and sintering the oxidized material to form a product having a nickel metal exterior and an interior containing nickel metal throughout which is dispersed the oxide of the alloying material.

  • A fuel cell anode electrode for use in fuel cells utilizing fuel electrolyte mixtures of methanol in potassium hydroxide electrolyte and ethylene glycol in potassium hydroxide electrolyte is made by pressing a paste mix of noble metal powder, graphite, and teflon onto a screen current collector, drying the electrode so formed, cathodically charging the electrode at a current density of about 2 1/2 to 10 mA/sq. cm for about 2 to about 6 minutes to deposit lead through electrolysis using a saturated solution of lead chloride, anodically charging the electrode for about 2 to about 12 minutes to oxidize themore » lead to lead dioxide, washing the electrode with distilled water, and drying the electrode.

  • An accumulator has an acid electrolyte and possesses two electrodes of the first kind mounted on base electrodes. The active material on the positive side contains manganese dioxide. The base electrode on the negative side consists of powdered graphite embedded in a binder which is resistant to the electrolyte. The base electrode on the positive side has a coarse porous structure and consists of graphite or titanium coated with titanium nitride or titanium carbide. The average pore diameters are from 0.1 to 2 mm, and the pore volume is from 20 to 70%. 3 tables.
  • A fuel cell that is characterized by including a dual electrode anode that is operable to simultaneously electro-oxidize a gaseous fuel and a liquid fuel. In alternative embodiments, a fuel cell having a single electrode anode is provided with a dual electrode cathode that is operable to simultaneously reduce a gaseous oxidant and a liquid oxidant to electro-oxidize a fuel supplied to the cell.
  • A method for forming a nanocomposite material, the nanocomposite material formed thereby, and a battery made using the nanocomposite material. Metal oxide and graphene are placed in a solvent to form a suspension. The suspension is then applied to a current collector. The solvent is then evaporated to form a nanocomposite material. The nanocomposite material is then electrochemically cycled to form a nanocomposite material of at least one metal oxide in electrical communication with at least one graphene layer.
