Abstract
The use of nonaqueous, molten salt and solid electrolytes for high energy density storage batteries (SB's) with anodes of Li, Na, Ca, Mg, Al and Ti, is discussed. Means to overcome the shortcomings of these systems, viz. low conductivity of the electrolyte, poor quality of the anodic metal deposited during recharging of the nonaqueous systems, high operating temperatures, of the molten salts and instability of solid- state electrolytes, are considered. Electrolytes with compositions in the transition region between the pure electrolyte and its solutions in the solvent, are suggested for examination in secondary battery systems with each of the six light anodes mentioned above.
