|Abstract||The behaviour of zinc and zinc-oxide in 5.3 M KOH in the presence of alkaline earth oxides, SnO, Ni(OH)2 and Co(OH)2 was examined by cyclic voltammetry. The influence of the alkaline earth oxides was compared with additives of established effects ( Bi2O3, LiOH,Na2Co3 and CdO). The alkaline earth oxide each exhibits a distinct bahaviour towards zincate. Whereas, a single process of interation with zincate was shown by CaO; two modes of interaction were obtained with SrO and BaO. Solid solution formation was noticed with BeO and MgO. The other additives forming solid solution with ZnO were Cdo and SnO. The ionic sizes of Ni(OH)2 and Co(OH)2 allow solid solution formation with Zn(OH)2. Both Bi2O3 and Na2CO3 enter into complexation with zincate. LiOH forms two distinct zincates, of which one is an oxo zincate leaching the 'hydroxyl' functionality. Cyclic voltammetry revealed the deposition of the oxide hydroxide additives as metal prior to the onset of zinc deposition and the potential range for this additive metal deposition is almost the same for different activities (SnO, CdO, Ni(OH)2). The beneficial action of these additives to zinc alkaline cells is associated with a substrate effect. The implication of this electrocatalytic deposition of metals on a zinc oxide electrode is also discussed.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
