The failure of porous lead dioxide electrodes (positives) to accept recharge during potential step experiments

Abstract

The electrochemistry of porous lead dioxide electrodes has been followed during short cycling experiments at high discharge rates using the potential step technique. The inability of the electrode to accept recharge is explained in terms of the formation of a passivating form of lead sulphate.
