Abstract

Different operating conditions of a new electrochemical cell based on sodium iodide and polyethylene glycol (PEG) polymer as separator as well as conducting electrolyte is reported. Five types of cells were fabricated using pure NaI, PC+NaI, water+NaI dil. HCl+NaI and dil. H2SO4+NaI in the cell configuration NaI |PEG| I2 and NaI |PEG|s I2+C. Their discharge characteristics were studied at room temperature (33 °C). From the cell parameters, it is found that the open circuit voltage ranges from 648 mV to 1023 mV and the short circuit current ranges from 29 µA to 4.8 mA.
