Nickel (II) Hydroxide

There is constant investment, innovation and competition in energy storage and battery chemistries as various products are developed that optimize batteries for different uses: fast-charging, fast-discharging, constant voltage, high voltage, volumetric energy density, chemical stability, low self-discharge rate, ability to be recharged multiple times, reliability, and other criteria. In many important cases, however, a basic building block is nickel(II) hydroxide, taking advantage of nickel’s electro-chemical properties and its relative abundance compared with chemicals based on platinum and related metals.
