Abstract
The use of manganese dioxide as a cathodic material in a sulfuric acid electrolyte was investigated, using amalgamated zinc as the anode. The manganese dioxide was blended with graphite and an organic binder, and applied to a current collector of lead foil. The lead foil, for best results, had previously been anodized in sulfuric acid. A large volume of sulfuric acid is necessary to secure good utilization of the manganese dioxide. No way of obviating this difficulty has been found.
