Abstract:

The current work is concerned with the development of a procedure for the preparation of a lithium-boron alloy suitable for use as an anode in thermal batteries. Metallography, thermal analysis, and X-ray diffraction techniques are being developed as tools for studying this multiphase material. A chemical analysis is planned to identify the composition of the various phases. Once the phase diagram for the system has been determined, we will be able to prepare material having optimum electrochemical properties for use as an anode material.
