Behaviour of the Passivating Film in LI/SOCL2 Cells Under Various Conditions

  • G. Eichinger
Part of the NATO Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 2)


The good storability of Li/SOCl2 cells is due to the formation of a protective LiCl film at the surface of the lithium electrode1,2. The protective film, however, often causes a voltage delay if the cell is discharged. The time of full voltage recovery varies from seconds to several hours2. This voltage delay may be unfavourable in some applications.
