Lithium Batteries with Liquid Depolarizers

  • Nikola Marincic

Abstract

A new class of batteries of highest energy density was discovered at the beginning of the last decade and, in an intense development, turned into a commercial product by the end of the same decade, 1979. These batteries are based on the electrochemical systems using lithium anodes, catalytic cathodes, and an electrolyte solvent that is reduced during discharge, thus fulfilling the role of a depolarizer as well.
