Abstract:

THE GOAL OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS IMPROVEMENT OF CURRENT STATE-OF-THE-ART LITHIUM/THIONYL CHLORIDE BATTERY TECHNOLOGYTHROUGH THE USE OF CARBON-BASED CATHODES CONTAINING ADVANCEDNON-NOBLE CATALYSTS. DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENTS IN BOTH SAFETY AND PERFORMANCE HAVE BEEN REALIZED THROUGH THE USE OF SAFETYHAVE BEEN AS COBALT-BASED PTHALOCYANINE AND TETRAAZODIBENZ OANNULENE, RESULTING IN HIGHER RATE CAPABILITIES, OPERATING VOLTAGES, AND REDUCED HEAT GENERATION. THUS FAR THE CATALYSTS WHICH HAVE BEEN EVALUATED AS SOC12 REDUCERS HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY UTILIZED AS OXYGEN-REDUCTION CATAALYSTS IN FUEL CELLS. PRECIOUS FEW OF THESE CATALYSTS HAVE BEEN EVALU ATED IN THE LI/SOC12 SYSTEM. THIS PROGRAM PROPOSES TO EVALU ATE THE PERFORMANCE OF TWO IMPORTANT CLASSES FO FUEL CELL CATALYSTS, SPINELS AND PORYPHYRINS, AS THIONYL CHLORIDE REDUCTION CATLYSTS IN UNDER THIS PROGRAM. CHEMICAL STABILITYOF THE PROPOSED CANDIDATES IN THE LI/SOC11 SYSTEM, AND I INITIAL ELECTROCHEMICAL PERFORMANCE. COMPATABILITY STUDIES WILL BE PERFORMED WITH ELECTROLYTE ALONE, AND IN THE COMPLETE BATTERY SYSTEM. ELECTROCHEMICAL EVALUATION WILL CONSIST OF RATE CAPABILITY, OPERATING VOLTAGE, DISCHARGE CAPACITY AND HEAT GENERATION STUDIES.
