-- NICKEL MIXED HYDROXIDE, METHOD FOR PRODUCING THE SAME, 
AND THE USE THEREOF AS A CATHODE MATERIAL IN ALKALINE BATTERIES 



ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE 
The invention relates to a nickel mixed hydroxide with Ni as the main element 
and with a layer structure, comprising at least one element M a from the group 
comprising Fe, Cr, Co, Ti, Zr and Cu which is present in two different oxidation 
states which differ by one electron in terms of the number of outer electrons; at least 
one element M b from the group comprising B, Al, Ga, In and RE (rare earth metals) 
present in the trivalent oxidation state; optionally at least one element M c from the 
group comprising Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba and Zn present in the divalent oxidation state; 
apart from the hydroxide, at least one additional anion from the group comprising 
halides, carbonate, sulfate, oxalate, acetate, borate and phosphate in a quantity 
sufficient to preserve the electroneutrality of the mixed hydroxide; and water of 
hydration in a quantity which stabilizes the relevant structure of the mixed 
hydroxide.-
