Instant synthesis of nanosized alpha-Ni(OH)2 from ammonia solution, for use in Nickel batteries
What we offer:
CSIC has developed an economic method for the quick synthesis of nanosized alpha nickel hydroxide in ammonia solution. The synthesis is realized at 20-30ºC, by the addition of nickel nitrate salts powder in aqueous ammonia solution, causing the direct alpha phase precipitation in less than 60 sg. Eventually, the synthesis can be carried out with the employment of ultrasound.
Nanosized alpha nickel hydroxide is employed for Ni-Cd and Ni-MH rechargeable batteries.
Advantages of the technology proposed:
•The economy, because the synthesis offered is performed under regular conditions of pressure and temperature. Only the alternative of ultrasound will require of specific equipment, but easy to install or to use.
•The rapidity, because the process is almost instant.
•The environmental friendship, because the process is carried out in an aqueous media with ammonia.
