Abstract
THERE IS A NEED FOR HIGH VOLTAGE, LOW EQUIVALENT WEIGHT CATHODE MATERIALS FOR USE IN RECHARGEABLE NON-AQUEOUS OR AQUEOUS BATTERIES. THE HALOGENS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS. HOWEVER, THEIR APPLICATION IN PRACTICAL CELLS IS LIMITED BY SEVERE SELF DISCHARGE. WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE THE ELECTRON DONOR-ACCEPTOR COMPLEX FORMED BETWEEN THE HALOGENS AND HEXAMETHYLENETETRAMINE AS A CATHODE MATERIAL WHICH COULD ELIMINATE THE SELF DISCHARGE ASSOCIATED WITH THE HALOGEN BASED CELLS. THE GOAL OF THE RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THIS MATERIAL CAN REDUCE THESELF-DISCHARGE PROBLEM WHILE RETAINING THE HIGH VOLTAGE AND LOW EQUIVALENT WEIGHT OF THE HALOGEN IN A MODERATE TO HIGH RATE, AMBIENT TEMPERATURE CELL.
