Low-melting fused salts are attractive, in principle, for reserve type cells since they simplify considerably materials problems encountered at the higher temperature. An exploratory survey made to assess in a preliminary fashion development of a low-melting fused salt electrolyte is described. Two main classes of low-melting salts were examined briefly organic fused salts with and without solvent and low melting inorganic salts. In all cases, lead was employed as the anode. Cathodes were either lead dioxide or silver chloride.
