Abstract : Work accomplished consisted of purifying solvents, determining the conductance and physical characteristics of electrolytes, and making half-cell studies. In some instances the specific conductance of electrolyte solutions exceeds 0.02 mho/cm, but ion solvation appears to limit the attainment of high conductance values. Measured electrode potentials were steady and approximated expected values, but in the first tests appreciable polarization took place under current loads. (Author)
