Abstract
Sulfur, blended with graphite and compressed on a nickel current collector, has been employed as the cathode in an organic electrolyte battery system with lithium as the anode. Of the electrolytes tried, dimethylsulfoxide-KCl04 and butyrolactone-dimethylsulfoxide mixtures with KCl04 or KSCN proved the best. Utilization of up to 20 per cent of the sulfur on partial reduction forms highly colored soluble polysulfides, which diffuse into the electrolyte and escape further reduction.
