Abstract:

Apparatus and techniques are described and the results reported on investigations of chemoelectric conversion in fused salts. Crucible cell test results of various electrolytes, anodes and cathodes are tabulated. Photographs of apparatus used, and reaction products from certain cells are shown. X-ray diffraction data for reduction products of vanadium pentoxide are presented. A new type of cell electrolyte was developed. It is composed of an alkali halide dissolved in a suitable low melting nonaqueous ionizing solvent. Variables of the crucible cell method are discussed. Author
