A hydrophobic porous hydrogen anode was prepared whose electrochemical parameters are comparable with anodes containing a platinum catalyst. For its successful preparation, oxidation of the Raney nickel catalyst with air oxygen or with fluorine from Teflon must be prevented. The electrodes of a geometric surface area up to 450 cm2 were tested in cells and modules filled with 7M-KOH.
