Abstract
Although a number of approaches to lithium-sulphur dioxide cell/battery disposal are presently being employed, little reliable information exists on the contents of a cell or battery after it has been discharged. Without such information, it is possible to make informed choices about the most cost-effective, environmentally-responsible method for disposal of these batteries. During this project FLCL noted that acetonitrile, a compound previously not believed to participate in the cell reaction, could be completely recovered from extensively discharged cells. The study also indicated that methods previously employed for cyanide analysis were subject to interferences, making collection of reliable cyanide results virtually impossible.
