Fabrication and Properties of Spray-Dried Nanofeatured Spherical Ni(OH)2 Materials
Abstract:Spherical agglomerates of nanostructured -phase Ni(OH)2 with the general formula Ni1-xCox (OH)2 (x = 0, 0.1, 0.3) for use as cathode materials were produced by a modified method including coprecipitation of Ni or Ni composite hydroxide and further spray drying of the precipitated and washed slurry. This process leads to the formation of spherical agglomerate particles with a narrow Gaussian-type distribution range. The method permits faster and cheaper production of cathode materials with a higher specific surface area and similar or better capacity and cycle life compared with the materials prepared via conventional technology.
