Abstract
A RESEARCH PROGRAM AIMED AT STUDYING THE MECHANISM OF ELECTROCATALYSIS IN THE LI/SOCL(2) IS PROPOSED. THE CATALYTIC ACTIVITY OF CARBON CATHODES IMPREGNATED WITH COBALTOUS OXIDE (COO), COBALTIC OXIDE (CO(2)O(3) OR CO TOWARDS THE REDUCTION OF SOCL(2) WILL BE ASSESSED. METHODS ARE PRESENTED FOR THE PREPARATION OF THESE CATALYSTS. THE RESULTS OF ELECTROCATALYSIS BY THESE MATERIALS WILL BE COMPARED WITH THAT OBSERVED IN LI/SOCL(2) CELLS UTILIZING COBALTDIBENSOTETRAAZAANNULENE (CO-TAA) AS THE CATALYST. A MECHANISM FOR ELECTROCATALYSIS IN THE LI/SOCL(2) CELL, PARTICULARLY THAT PERTAINING TO CO-TAA CATALYSIS, WILL BE DESCRIBED. IT IS ENVISIONED THAT A SYSTEMATIC PHASE II INVESTIGATION BASED ON THE FOUNDATION LAID IN THIS PHASE I RESEARCH, WOULD LEAD TO THE ABILITY TO DESIGN AND DEVELOP SUPERIOR CATALYSTS NOT ONLY FOR THE LI/SOCL(2) CELL BUT ALSO FOR CELLS SUCH AS THE LI/SO(2) AND LI/SO(2)CL(2).
