Abstract : Liquid oxychlorides are fed to a cathode chamber in an aqueous electrolyte battery. The oxychlorides flow through a porous carbon electrode. At the electrode the oxychlorides are reduced and the reaction products dissolve in an aqueous electrolyte flowing by the face of the carbon electrode opposite to that in which the oxychlorides are introduced. Metal standoffs connect to the porous electrode for use as conductors while maintaining spacing in the cathode chamber. (Author)
