Abstract:

AINED FOR 50 CYCLES FROM A ZINC-AIR CELL BY a containing the zinc anode within a plastic frame onto which the separator layers were epoxy-sealed, b blocking the edges of the anode with a thin plastic shield, and c providing a 20 to 30 mil thick electrolyte channel between the charging electrodes and separator clad anode. Preliminary results from sealed zinc-oxygen cell investigations indicate that good capacity maintenance can be attained by a sealing the charging electrode within a plastic frame onto which a layer of potassium titanate paper is epoxy-sealed to the edge of the electrolyte face and a thin porous teflon layer is cemented to the gas face, b using silver-amalgam catalyzed oxygen electrodes, and c adding 5 potassium titanate powder to the zinc oxide mix.
