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 In(OH)3, (h) Tl2O3 and Ga2O3, (i) PbO and CdO, (j) PbO and SnO2, (k) PbO and In(OH)3, 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.
