Abstract : The overall aim of the program is an examination of the viability of an active electrolyte lithium-sulfuryl chloride battery system. The specific objectives are: (1) Quantify the stability of lithium in sulfuryl chloride solution, (2) Explore means to stabilize lithium in sulfuryl chloride, (3) Establish the limits of performance of carbon/teflon cathodes. During the second quarter we: (1) Continued characterization of anode stability with respect to cell design and electrolyte composition, (2) Determined the voltage delay after storage as a function of electrolyte composition, and (3) Characterized the performance at room temperatures of cells with and without performance additives. We found that: (1) Positive grounding or floating of both electrodes with respect to the case enhance anode stability, (2) The bromine performance additive increases anode stability, (3) The bromine performance additive decrease voltage delay, and (4) The bromine performance additive is superior to the chlorine performance additive in terms of delivered capacity.
