The purpose of the work is to provide basic information on selected electrochemical couples which may be useful in the development of electrochemical energy storage systems suitable for vehicle propulsion. A literature survey was made on the cathodic oxygen electrode in non-aqueous solvents and revealed that, while very little work on this reaction has been done, there exists a reversible one-electron reduction of oxygen in several organic solvents. An attempt to purify the solvent by electrolysis was unsuccessful. A spinning band column was set up for fractional distillation. Electrochemical cells were designed and fabricated. Author
