A method is presented for testing various carbon blacks used with organic nitro-cathode materials based on the ability of the carbon black to adsorb m-dinitrobenzene from 2N magnesium perchlorate saturated with m- dinitrobenzene. The data obtained from adsorption tests and capacity tests for absorbed m-dinitrobenezene on various carbon blacks are summarized. Effects of reaction products are discussed, and adsorption-capacity tests are summarized for two carbon blacks selected as superior to others tested. A-cell-capacity test data are given. Eighteen-month storage-test results are given for AZ-10 magnesium A-cells 3-month storage-test data are presented for AZ-21 magnesium A-cells made with various carbon blacks.
