This translation investigates the components of carbonate impurities in the active masses of nickel-cadmium batteries. It is shown here that the positive active mass contains potassium carbonate. Nickel hydroxide adsorbs carbon dioxide in the air, and on contact with the electrolyte, carbonizes it. The negative active mass basically contains carbonates in the form of cadmium carbonate.
