Abstract:

The effect of the presence of surfactants in the electrolyte of silver-zinc batteries on the cycle life has been briefly investigated. In some cases there is an improvement in cycle life. To determine the reson for this, the effect of surfactants on the following processes has also been investi gated 1 silver ion diffusion through cellophane 2 throwing power of a potassium zincate solution 3 limiting passivation current density for the zinc anode 4 polarographic reduction potential of zincate ions and 5 zincate ion diffusion through cellophane membranes.
