Abstract:

Measurements have been made of both temperature and voltage, during and after discharge, on magnesiumsilver chloride batteries. These measurements were made on single-and multiple-cell stacks at 45C. A study of cell behavior was carried out to determine the possibility of decreasing the corrosion of the magnesium and extending the length of run-out of the present system. An explanation is given for the high corrosion rate of magnesium in 20 LiCl solutions with 0.5 Na2Cr2O7. Possible means of controlling this rate are also presented.
