Abstract
Chemically prepared silver oxide (AgO) is used as the depolarizer in electrodes designed for a high-rate primary application. The AgO, blended with a few per cent of carbon, is compressed into a plaque on a silver grid, using methyl cellulose as binder. Coulombic efficiencies in the range 75-80 per cent of theoretical are attained on discharge at about 1.1 amp/in2. Variations in preparation designed to increase efficiency are described, as are some characteristics of the resulting plates. The added carbon is thought to act by maintaining electrical contact within the plate during discharge.
