Description

A facile method was used to synthesize six different mixed metal Prussian blue analogues, specifically hexacyanoferrate and hexacyanocobaltate. Two of the mixed metal hexacyanoferrates are currently being tested and the information on its electrochemical properties is unable to be disclosed. Because of this, only one mixture, nickel cobalt hexacyanoferrate (NiCoHCF), was tested in a three-electrode battery cell with cyclic voltammetry (CV) and galvanic cycling (GC). NiCoHCF was also examined under SEM. The purpose of the experiment is to create a high-energy storage and rechargeable battery in order to provide an environmentally friendly, high abundance, and low cost alternative to the lithium ion battery.
