Abstract : Organic compounds that can be thermally degraded to yield permanently liquid solvents for ionizable salts are being sought for use in electrolytes for the proposed thermal reaction battery. Several oximes, oxime esters, and oxime ethers were prepared and pyrolyzed. Some of the pyrolyses were rapid at temperatures near 200C, most success being attained with aldoxime esters. Evidence thus far indicates that an acceptable pyrolysis rate can be obtained at these or lower temperatures using Lewis-acid catalysts or at higher temperatures using high-boiling materials. Prior conductivity measurements have indicated that solutions of inorganic salts in the pyrolysis products of oxime esters will give specific conductances sufficient for the proposed thermal reaction battery.
