Abstract:

Evaluation of cathode matrix materials was begun, with liquid ammonia solutions as electrolytes and m-dinitrobenzene or 2, 4-dinitroaniline as the cathode oxidant. Cathode pads containing carbon and glass fibers, silvered glass fibers, platinized carbon and glass fibers, and other noble metals on carbon with glass fibers were tested. A computer program was developed to provide data analysis of typical battery discharge curves. Machine output includes a summary of performance factors and graphs of potentialtime, powertime, capacity, and energy. Study of ammonia battery cell stoichiometry was continued by testing the effect of construction variations on internal operating temperature, pressure, and resistance. The test fixture is illustrated, and the results of two best tests are described. Author
