Abstract : This program involved evaluation of selected low temperature molten salt solvent systems containing inorganic and/or organic chlorides and bromides for battery applications. The research involved determination of the liquids temperatures, the specific electrical conductivity, and the electrochemical span of selected halide systems. The studies of a few cathode and anode systems and of two prototype cells were also undertaken for a few promising solvent systems.
