Abstract
THE PROPOSAL RELATES TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF BATTERY SEPARATORS VIA TECHNOLOGY OF CHEMICAL GRAFTING THAT INVOLVES THE USE OF MONOMERS, PREPOLYMERS, CATALYST, AND GRAFT INITIATOR SYSTEM. TWO APPROACHES FOR GRAFTING OF MONOMERS ONTO MEMBRANE SUBSTRATES WILL BE PURSUED: 1. BY CHEMICAL GRAFTING OF MONOMERS BY A FREE RADICAL 2. BY SULFONATION OF MEMBRANE SUBSTRATE, FOLLOWED BY DEPENDING ON THE FUNCTIONAL GROUP OF MONOMERS, THE GRAFTED FILM BECOMES WETTABLE, WICKABLE, CONDUCTIVE, AND RESISTANT TO CHEMICALS (ACIDS AND BASE SOLUTIONS). THE SEPARATORS THUS DEVELOPED WILL BE USED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF IMPLANTABLE RECHARGEABLE SILVER-ZINC BATTERIES FOR VENTRICULAR ASSIST SYSTEMS (VAS).
