Other than the gaseous hydrogen storage properties, metals, and alloys can also store hydrogen by electrochemical methods. At present, hydrogen storage alloys are used as the negative electrode materials in nickel-metal hydride (Ni–MH) batteries, which is a significant application. As the negative electrodes, the hydrogen storage alloys significantly affect the overall charge-discharge properties of Ni–MH.
