Substitutional effect of small amount of Ti in hydrogen storage electrode alloy Ml(NiCoMnTi)(5) was systematically studied. The results show that Ti in the alloy is almost entirely separated out as a second phase of TiNi3 at boundary of the as-cast dendrite. After annealed, TiNi3 phase disappeared, but SEM and EDS analyses indicate that the partially substituted element by Ti is mishmetal Ml, not Ni in B side as expected, i.e. Ti is an A side substituent element. The optimal substitution amount is 5% (atomic fraction), with which the corresponding alloy, both as-cast and annealed, shows a high discharge capacity over 310 mA(.)h/g. If more Ti is added, a greatly decreased discharge capacity will be received with only a little increase of better cycle stability.
