Alkaline Ni-Fe batteries employ sintered iron electrodes as anodes. Iron oxide and copper powders are added to iron powder during sintering to improve charge retention and cycle life. Electrochemical studies on the iron-copper electrodes revealed that iron oxide addition hindered the formation of higher valent oxides of iron and reduced the self discharge. An optimum composition of iron oxide and copper for iron electrodes has been suggested
