A method of making an intermetallic negative electrode for an electrochemical cell. One or more metal salts is dissolved in an organic solvent forming a solution to which is added a metal reducing agent to form an intermetallic compound. Thereafter, the intermetallic compound precipitates and is separated and formed into an electrode. The electrodes are useful in electrochemical cells and batteries.
