THE DEVELOPMENT OF LITHIUM/SULFUR CELLS FOR APPLICATION TO ELECTRIC AUTOMOBILES

This paper describes recent efforst at Argonne National Laboratory to develop lithium/sulfur cells suitable for electric-automobile batteries. The cells studied were of the type Li/LiC1-KC1/FeS sub 2, in which the negative electrodes are liquid lithium alloys or solid lithium- aluminum alloys and the positive electrodes are iron sulfide. One of the cells discussed in this paper has attained an operating lifetime of over 2,000 hr and a cycle life of over 200 cycles.
