Abstract:

The current-potential curves of polycarbon monofluoride CF cathodes in lithiumorganic electrolyteCF cells were measured using a technique which excluded the Ohmic iR drop. Further, the initial cathodic discharge behavior of perfluorinated organic compounds and fluorinated nitrogen containing organic compounds was compared with CF. Application of the mixed potential theory to the cathodic kinetic of polycarbon monofluoride led to a relationship between rate capability and electrochemical stability under no load conditions. Application of the mixed potential theory to carbon fluorine compounds, in general, explains the high reactivity of kinetically superior carbon fluorine compounds with the organic solvents.
