Non-toxic intermetallic hydride-forming compounds are attractive alternatives to cadmium as the negative electrode materials in the new generation of Ni/metal hydride rechargeable batteries. High exchange currents and discharge efficiencies even at low temperatures can be achieved using highly electroactive metal alloys containing two different crystallographic phases, an approach which also obviates the need for the inclusion of precious metals.
