Abstract : Attempts to determine the diffusion coefficient of the phosphate ion failed, the metaphosphate ion is converted to the much less soluble orthocompound by traces of moisture. The diffusion coefficient as well as the activation energy for the diffusion process were determined for the sulfate ion. D at 500 C was found to be 1.95 x 10 to the -5th power sq cm/sec; activation energy was 5765 cal. Cell tests improved power outputs from both Li2SO4-K2SO4 and CuPO3-LiPO3 combinations when they were used as depolarizers. (Author)
