Abstract : The overall aim of the program is an examination of the viability of an active electrolyte lithium/sulfuryl chloride battery system. The specific objectives are to quantify the stability of lithium in sulfuryl chloride solutions; explore the means to improve the stability of lithium; and establish the limits of performance of carbon/teflon cathodes in sulfuryl chloride electrolytes. During this quarter we measured the rates of corrosion of lithium in sulfuryl chloride in cells and sealed capsules by microcalorimetry; estimated by complex plane impedance measurements; followed the growth of the film on cell storage, its disruption on polarization and its healing following polarization; established the baseline cathode performance; and measured the conductivity and density of SO2CL2-LiALCL4 electrolysis at ambient and high temperature.
