Abstract
INNOVATIVE APPROACHES TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED AT BOTH THE ANODE AND CATHODE OF THE HYDROGEN-BROMINE BATTERY SYSTEM ARE ADDRESSED. ADVANCED INERT CATALYSTS WILL BE PREPARED AS THE POSITIVE ELECTRODE MATERIAL AND TESTED FOR THEIR RESISTANCE AGAINST BROMINE INTERCALATON AND SUBSEQUENT DEGRADATION. SIMILARLY, NOVEL ELECTRO-CATALYSTS WILL BE USED FOR THE NEGATIVE ELECTRODE TO IMPROVE THE RESISTANCE AGAINST BROMIDE POISONING.
