Abstract:

This three year program involves evaluation of selected low temperature molten salt solvent systems containing inorganic andor organic chlorides and bromides for battery applications. The research involves determination of the liquidus temperatures, the specific electrical conductivity, and the electrochemical span of selected halide systems. Characterization of the solvent species by Raman spectroscopy, vapor pressure measurements, and the electrochemical study of a few cathode and anode systems will be undertaken for the most promising solvent systems. The research during the second year of this project involved the determination of liquidus temperatures andor specific electrical conductivities for a number of binary and ternary molten salt systems containing AlCl3, AlBr3, SbCl3, FeCl3, and GaCl3.
