An electrochemical study of lead acid battery positive electrodes
thesisposted on 18.12.2013, 12:20 by Simon Webster
The thesis describes an electrochemical investigation into the properties of various lead alloys used in the manufacture of leadacid battery positive electrodes. The electrochemical results have been discussed in terms of current nucleation and growth theories. The morphological aspects of the discharge reaction have been investigated and theories are presented describing some of the important influences of various alloying ingredients. It has been found possible to suggest trends important in the optimisation of alloy composition for modern lead-acid battery grids. This aspect is especially relevant to the development of maintenance free technology.
