Abstract
The electrochemical properties of a new hydrogen storage alloy Ti3Ni2 have been studied in detail. The results show that the discharge capacity of Ti3 Ni2 alloy reaches 384.4 mA h/g (corresponding to Ti3Ni2H3.7) at 353 K and 1 45.5 mA h/g (corresponding to Ti3Ni2H1.47) at 278 K. At the higher temperat ure (353 K), two plateaus appear on the discharge curve, and at the lower t emperature (278 K) only one plateau. The kinetic property of Ti3Ni2 alloy e lectrode is poor, The following properties, namely the retention of charge, the activation of alloy, the kinetic property of Ti3Ni2 alloy (including t he exchange current, the diffusion coefficient of hydrogen and high-rate di schargeability) can all be improved by increasing the temperature. It can b e seen from X-ray diffraction analysis that two phases exist in alloy: name ly the cubic Ti2NiH phase with Fe3W3C structure and the cubic TiNiH phase f or the alloy cycled in alkaline solution, and the cubic Ti2NiH0.5 phase wit h Fe3W3C structure and the cubic TiNiH phase for the alloy hydrogenated wit h gaseous hydrogen.
