Abstract:

Electrochemical studies on high energy anode and cathode materials coupled in organic electrolytes were undertaken to determine the feasibility of producing batteries superior to aqueous systems in the areas of 1 higher energy density per unit weight and volume, 2 wider temperature range of operation than aqueous batteries, and 3 lower operating temperature than aqueous batteries. The report covers the selection of couples for study in organic electrolytes. Statistical evaluation of half cell potential data at room temperature has disclosed inorganic acid anhydrides to be promising cathode materials in several organic electrolytes. Preliminary cell studies using lithium anodes, dimethyl sulfoxide electrolytes and acid anhydride cathode materials such as chromium trioxide, iodine pentoxide, molybdic oxide and vanadium pentoxide were to characterize electrochemical performance of these materials.
