View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
BCC metal hydride alloys historically have limited electrochemical capabilities. Provided are a new examples of these alloys useful as electrode active materials. BCC metal hydride alloys provided include a disordered structure that is formed of a BCC primary phase and three or more electrochemically active secondary phases that are induced to create structural disorder in the system. The structurally disordered hydrogen storage alloys possess unexpectedly superior electrochemical characteristics relative to compositionally similar materials.
