Abstract:

Research concerned 1 lithium batteries based on organic aprotic solvents and 2 aqueous AgOZn batteries. Techniques were established for reducing the impurity content of propylene carbonate to less than 10 ppm. Reference electrode was developed for use with LiClO4PC solutions. Thin film CuCuF2 electrodes were formed by electroplating in anhydrous HF-KF. The discharge behavior of silver oxide was studied in aqueous KOH. Amalgamated silver and gold are satisfactory O2-removal electrodes for AgOZn batteries. Hydrogen evolution is of the same order as on zinc. Pre-electrolysis of aqueous KOH will introduce trace impurities into solution if the electrode is allowed to reach O2 evolution.
