Abstract:

Storage of discharged electrolyte in AgCl cells for infrared analysis leads to artifactual absorbances. However, there are real changes in discharge and overcharge intermediates as shown by changes in infrared spectra of electrolyte stored in glass. Debye-Scherrer examination of cathodes overdischarged in cathode limited cells indicates the presence of both LiCl and Li202 as well as at least one other solid. Author
