Magnetic anode for copper cathode battery

  1. Nov 13, 2014 #1
    Hello everyone from the Physics Forums, I'm doing a school project and I'm looking for a potential anode alloy that is ferromagnetic which I could use with a copper cathode. I'm making a battery and I have to use copper as my cathode mainly because I have made the cathode cells structured similar to a squirrel cage because I want to test its design when induced with chemical and magnetic reactions (its a weird idea but I'm more than welling to report my results to anyone whose curious). And I also what to have a material that will react with copper more than iron because the casing will contain iron and I don't want the iron to react with the anode and cathode reactions (because it is part of the housing and also because the the copper cells have iron cores to help attract and induce the magnetic fields.

    I have found a list of soft and permanent magnets online but I was very fascinated with having a costume made ferrite magnet made from
    epsilon iron(III) oxide ε-Fe2O3 because this oxide is highly magnetic and it also has an oxide agent which in turn is desirable for an anode agent (just an idea of mine, testing with my limited funds).

    Here is the list of some permanent magnets that I found online and their chemical composition, if anyone has any ideas I'm open up to any of them and if you need more information you may ask away!
