Abstract:

A total of 31 new compounds was screened for depolarizer activity. Several compounds that showed promise were investigated further in a cell which more closely simulates the conditions of discharge in a round dry cell. Of the new compounds tested, the sodium and silver salts of dinitropyromellitic acid and 2,5-dinitropyrrole showed sufficient promise for further testing. It was also shown that at appreciable current densities, ortho- and meta-dinitrobenzene have approximately the same discharge characteristics. Author
