Abstract : A number of types of lithium secondary and primary nonaqueous batteries are under development in the Power Sources Division at Fort Monmouth. Military applications for portable power sources range from communications to laser designators and night vision devices. For the latter two applications, the lithium-thionyl chloride battery has been identified as a highly promising system. The battery was initially shown to be capable of providing very high energy densities at various rates of discharge. Since there are virtually no detailed studies on the general physical chemistry of electrolyte solutions in SOC12, the initial phase of the program to develop new electrolytes was to determine those factors which govern both conductivities and solubilities.
