Abstract : The general objective of this research program was to prepare complexes of the general type A(MoCl6) (A = monopositive cation), for use as cathode materials in chemical batteries with the specific aim of developing techniques for large scale preparation of the lithium and sodium salts. The various complexes were studied by a wide range of spectrochemical and electrochemical techniques such as epi, ir, Raman and solution electronic absorption spectroscopy and cyclic voltametry. The work and results have been closely evaluated with personnel at the USAF FJ Seiler Research Laboratories.
