    Fe/Fe<sub>3</sub>O<sub>4</sub>/Graphene composite electrode material was synthesized by a thermal reduction method and then used as anode material along with Nickel cathode in rechargeable Ni/Fe alkaline batteries in hybrid electric vehicles. Reduced graphene /Fe/Fe<sub>3</sub>O<sub>4</sub> composite electrode material was prepared using a facile three step synthesis involving synthesis of iron oxalate and subsequent reduction of exfoliated graphene oxide and iron oxalate by thermal decomposition method. The synthesis approach presents a promising route for a large-scale production of reduced graphene /Fe/Fe<sub>3</sub>O<sub>4</sub> composite as electrode material for Ni/Fe rechargeable batteries. The particle size and structure of the samples were characterized by SEM and XRD.
