Abstract : Preliminary work has been done on determining the capacity of the silver oxide-zinc alkaline cell when using various zinc alloys as a sheet anode. Most alloying elements decrease cell capacity, particularly if they are present in appreciable amounts. Mercury definitely improves cell capacity. A few other elements such as cobalt and calcium show some increased celi capacity but need further testing. The grain structure of electrodes made of zinc and its alloys has a large effect on cell capacity. Most of the zinc alloys were found to roll better at very high temperatures.
