Reflections on Some Recent Studies of Materials of Importance in Aqueous Electrochemical Energy-Storage Systems

  • E. J. Casey
Part of the NATO Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 2)


In this paper an attempt is made to provoke thought on materials which are used or are formed in rechargeable batteries based on watery electrolytes. It was decided not to attempt a compendium, but rather to focus in on selected topics which in our judgment seem important and on which new information has a good probability of practical payoff in improved performance.


Electron Spin Resonance Battery System Preparative Procedure Lead Chloride Deteriorate Water Quality
