Abstract:

Several compounds have been tested as potential cathodes in batteries using low-melting molten chloroaluminate AlCl3-NaCl mixtures solvents and aluminum metal anodes. Fluorinated graphite with different fluorine content, binary and ternary intercalation compounds, such as C-WCl6 and C-AlCl3-Cl2, several quinones, and positive iodine and sulfur cations have been studied. The latter, involving positive oxidation state of sulfur, is the most promising cathode system of those studied Ssub n mAl. Modified author abstract
