Abstract:

A zinc electrode was developed which contains a minor amount of a Tl2O3, b PbO, c CdO or mixtures of d Tl2O3 and PbO, e Tl2O3 and CdO, f Tl2O3 and SnO2, g Tl2O3 and InOH3, h Tl2O3 and Ga2O3, i PbO and CdO, j PbO and SnO2, k PbO and InOH3, and l PbO and Ga2O3, to reduce shape change and hydrogen gassing of the zinc electrode. It is used as the anode in an alkaline battery.
