Abstract:

THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH ENERGY DENSITY MAGNESIUM BATTERIES, WITH SULFUR DIOXIDE SERVING EITHER AS A CATHODE DEPOLARIZER OR AS AN ELECTROLYTIC SOLVENT, IS PROPOSED. IN THE LATTER CONFIGURATION, A METAL FLUORIDE, INSOLUBLE IN SO2, WILL SERVE AS THE CATHODE DEPOLARIZER. THE CONDUCTIVITY OF MG SALTS IN SO2 WILL BE DETERMINED TO SELECT AN APPROPRIATE ELECTROLYTE SOLUTION FOR USE IN THE MG CELL. LABORATORY TEST CELLS UTILIZING THE VARIOUS CATHODE DEPOLARIZERS WILL BE CONSTRUCTED AND THEIR PERFORMANCE EVALUATED AT A VARIETY OF CURRENT DENSITIES AND TEMPERATURES.
