Abstract: LiNiCoO2 (LCNO) has been prepared using combustion method with urea as the igniter and glycerol as the binding material due to its high activity. Urea, used as fertiliser, can be produced by way of sequence chemical approaches by means of the usage of H2, N2 and CO2. It is good performance hydrogen and carbon dioxide as storage medium due to high energy density (16.9 M*J *L−1, 10.1 weight percent of H2) for direct urea fuel cell (DUFC). Nitrates of Li+, Co+2 and Ni+2 had been combined together to shape a homogenous medium. Required quantities of urea and glycerol have been brought to combination and made a good paste. This paste is heated to 400°C for 2h. The as-synthesised fabric used to be subjected to thermo-gravimetric (TGA) analysis to decide the top of the line varies of annealing temperatures.
