Abstract:

Work is under way to design a laboratory-type cell for operation with a matrix. Tests are in progress to determine matrix compatibility with electrolyte optimization of mechanical and electrical properties of the matrix are progressing. A successful 96-hour seal was produced, although insulators were cracked and electrolyte seepage occurred. A preliminary check of electrochemical properties yielded encouraging results, predicting performance in the 50- to 100-wattsq. ft. range.
