Abstract:

Cathode polarization and discharge performance studies at -20 and -40 F showed that the limiting currents of LiSOCl2 cells decreased linearly with reciprocal temperature and an Arrhenius temperature dependence of limiting current was not observed between the temperatures -40 and 75 F. Systematic evaluation of cathode variables such as carbon substrate, thickness and density on the cathode performance was carried out at 0 F and 75 F. Significant improvements in both cathode polarization and performance were achieved with catalyzed cathodes containing 5 Teflon binder. Author
