Abstract:

Several prospective electrode materials were examined in half-cell studies with a variety of electrolytes Electrodeposited Li showed favorable potential and low polarization, but the measured efficiencies did not exceed 60 Mg showed a high efficiency, but passivation phenomena were observed which will cause delay action The Al potential is not negative enough for this anode to be coupled with solid cathodes in highenergy batteries AgO, MnO2, NiF2, and NiCl2 were mixed with carbon and tested as cathodes A periodic current interruptor was constructed because it is essential to distinguish between activation and electrolyte resistance polarization IR drop.
