The feasibility of using beta-alumina electrolyte cells for e.m.f. measurements on other metal/metal fluoride systems is discussed in the light of the existence of a useful potential domain of beta-alumina. High sodium potential in the electrode system can lead to sodium depletion. Likewise, low sodium potential may result in oxidation of the metals in the electrodes. Both these limiting factors are also examined.
