Microbattery materials, Ni(OH)2 properties

  1. Jul 7, 2009 #1
    Hello all,

    I am new on this, I am making a simulation of a microbattery which use Ni(OH)2, Nickel(II) Hydorxide, as the cathode.

    I am having problems to find the information about the diffusion coeficient and the electrical conductivity of Ni(OH)2.

    I try in the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, the Perry's chemical enginnering handbook and others materials books, but I canĀ“t find the information.

    Please somebody could help whith this, some other source, or paper In which I could find this information.

    Thanks and Regards.
