Abstract : The report describes research on the low temperature behavior of air electrodes for metal-air battery systems, specifically zinc-air cells. The studied influences on cathode performance include kinetics (via measurement of exchange currents, Tafel parameters, heats of activation for O2 reduction) and mass electrode transport factors (via electrolyte variations and electrode structure effects). An improved zinc-air cell evaluated.
