This work aimed to develop the novel air electrode for metal hydride/air rechargeable battery. The improvement in mass energy density of the battery needs to reduce the weight of the air electrode, because the air electrode of metal hydride/air battery has no limitation on discharge capacity, which is quite different from lithium/air secondary battery producing solid discharge product in the air electrode. The air electrode of the metal hydride/air battery is also required to have a high durability for oxygen evolution in concentrated KOH solutions. This paper shows the preparation and performance of the novel air electrode using core-shell particles as the conducting material, in which the core is a low density oxide and the shell is an anti-corrosive alloy for alkaline solutions. The oxygen evolution and reduction performance of the air electrode and the cell performance using the air electrode are also reported.
