Abstract : Recently we have made a breakthrough in the development of two advanced Ca-TC systems which have much better storage properties than the state-of-the-art Ca-SOCl2 cell. This has been done by replacing the CaX2 (X=AlCl4) electrolyte by SrX2 (type A), or BaX2 (type B). The project's goals are to gain a better understanding of the electrochemistry of the advanced systems and to establish their safety and performance. In this report we present preliminary results regarding the properties of these three electrolytes emphasizing the role of SO2 in affecting their viscosity, conductivity and Raman spectra. Keywords: Calcium battery; Thionyl chloride; Electrical conductivity; Viscosity; Raman spectra; Strontium; Barium shelf life; High energy density battery.
