Abstract
A PROGRAM TO STUDY THE SAFETY RELATED CHEMISTRY OF THE LI/(CF)X BATTERY IS PROPOSED. COMMERCIAL C-SIZE CELLS WILL BE USED AS THE TEST VEHICLES FOR THIS INVESTIGATION. IN LAYING THE FOUNDATION FOR A COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT OF THE SAFETY ASPECTS OF THE LI/(CF)X BATTERY, THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL EMPHASIZE: (I) ANALYSIS OF FRESH CELLS TO DETERMINE THE BASELINE CHEMISTRY OF THE SYSTEM; (II) FORCED OVERDISCHARGE OF CELLS AT THE SERIES OF CURRENTS; (III) CHARGING OF FRESH AND PARTIALLY DISCHARGED CELLS, AND (IV) SHORT-CIRCUIT BEHAVIOR OF THE CELLS. A MAJOR EMPHASIS WILL BE ON CHEMICAL ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE CHEMICAL CHANGES OCCURRING WITHIN THE CELL AS A RESULT OF THE ABUSE TREATMENTS.
