A novel metal/metal-oxide ball-milled Sn/SnO-Cu/CuO with graphene/MWCNT composites based primary cell has been developed by direct mixing method. The electrochemical properties of with and without the influence carbon allotropes have been analyzed using cyclic voltammetry (CV), Tafel plot, Impedance spectroscopy. The prepared anode and cathode composites characterized by XRD studies revealed that the influence of carbon allotropes overlapped with the base anode and cathode electrodes and have not shown any significant changes in the monoclinic phase. SEM and TEM analysis confirmed that the dendritic structure of Sn/SnO-Cu/CuO is prevented by the addition of graphene and MWCNT. The life of this metal oxide-based cell has been extended to 150 days. Carbon allotropes alloyed cell shows better electrochemical properties and improves the reversibility and corrosion resistance. © 2019 IOP Publishing Ltd.
