Abstract:

An investigation was made of the electrochemical behavior of single crystal lithiated nickel oxide. Studies of the current-potential relationships for various redox couples on these electrodes were emphasized in order to gain information concerning the influence of the semiconducting properties of the NiO electrode on charge transfer across the electrode-solution interface. Additional work was done on the reduction of oxygen in basic solution as an example of a reaction where specific catalytic properties of the NiO beyond just the carrier concentration should be important. These kinetic measurements were complemented with voltammetry and a.c. impedance studies of the intrinsic electrochemical properties of the single crystal oxide. Author
