  • New energy storage chemistries based on Mg ions or Ca ions can theoretically improve both the energy density and reduce the costs of batteries. To date there has been limited progress in implementing these systems due to the challenge of finding a high voltage high capacity cathode that is compatible with an electrolyte that can plate and strip the elemental metal. In order to accelerate the discovery of such a system, model systems are needed that alleviate some of the issues of incompatibility. This report demonstrates the ability of nickel hexacyanoferrate to electrochemically intercalate Mg, Ca and Zn ions frommore » a nonaqueous electrolyte. This material has a relatively high insertion potential and low overpotential in the electrolytes used in this study. Furthermore, since it is not an oxide based cathode it should be able to resist attack by corrosive electrolytes such as the chloride containing electrolytes that are often used to plate and strip magnesium. This makes it an excellent cathode for use in developing and understanding the complex electrochemistry of multivalent ion batteries.« less
  • Because of its high values of specific capacity and open-circuit voltage when paired with a lithium electrode, alkali-metal cobaltate is of interest in the development of high-energy storage batteries. Systems are studied in this paper where the alkali-metal atom in the compound, the alkali-metal ion in the electrolyte, and the solvent type were the variables. The alkali-metal cobaltates were prepared by heating compressed mixtures of cobaltous-cobaltic oxide with carbonates or peroxides of the alkali metal. The resulting products were identified by x-ray diffraction and chemical analysis. Cyclic potentio-dynamic curves for the cobaltates of lithium, sodium, and potassium were recorded inmore » the same lithium salt solution and are presented. Potentiostatic oxidation of the cobaltates was performed. The results are given when the electrode is cycled galvanostatically.« less
  • Electrochemical reduction of natural graphite was carried out in 1M LiClO[sub 4] ethylene carbonate (EC)/1,2-dimethoxyethane (DME) solution at 30 C. Natural graphite was reduced stepwise to LiC[sub 6]. The staging phenomenon was observed by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The first stage and the second stage compounds were identified as a commensurate structure in which lithium atoms form a close-packed two-dimensional array. A second-stage compound (LiC[sub 18]) with a different in-plane lithium ordering based on a LiC[sub 9] two-dimensional packing in lithium intercalated sheets also was observed; also third, fourth-stage compounds were identified. The electrochemical oxidation of the first-stage compound (LiC[sub 6])more » was examined and shown to reversible over the entire range, i.e., C[sub 6] + xLi [r reversible] Li[sub x]C[sub 6]. The reaction mechanism for the reduction of graphite and the oxidation of the first-stage compound are discussed in relation to the staging phenomenon from the detailed open-circuit voltage and XRD data. The chemical potential of LiC[sub 6] was estimated to be [minus]3.6 kcal mol from the observed reversible potential. The feasibility of using a lithium-graphite intercalation compound in lithium ion (shuttlecock) cells is described, and the innovative secondary systems, C[sub 6]/LiCoO[sub 2] and C[sub 6]/LiNiO[sub 2] fabricated in discharged states, are demonstrated.« less
  • Lanthanum ferricyanide is so far the only 3-3 electrolyte whose activity coefficients have been studied carefully; however, the results have been acknowledged to be inconsistent below 1x10{sup -4} mol-kg{sup -1}. New measurements have been made with an improved cell, proving that the wrong trend was due to chemical interference in the original cell. The new cell makes it possible to reach dilution levels of the order of 4x10{sup -6} mol-kg{sup -1}. The salt behaves radically unlike Debye-Hueckel`s predictions, but agrees with other more refined treatments of the hard sphere models without needing any further hypotheses, such as e.g., association. Themore » revised values of the activity coefficients are reported.« less
  • Potassium nickel hexacyanoferrate(II)s (KNiFC) were incorporated in the porous matrix of chabazite by successive impregnation with Ni(NO{sub 3}){sub 2} and K{sub 4}Fe(CN){sub 6}. The loading percentage of KNiFC crystals on chabazite increased with repeated times of impregnation. The ion-exchange equilibrium of Cs{sup +} in KNiFC-loaded chabazite (CFC) was attained within 2 days. Relatively large distribution coefficients of Cs{sup +}, K{sub d,Cs}, above 10{sup 4} cm{sup 3}/g were obtained, irrespective of coexisting NaNO{sub 3} concentration. There is a large difference between the K{sub d} value of {sup 137}Cs and those of other nuclides; the separation factor of Cs/Sr ({alpha}{sub Cs/Sr} =more » K{sub d,Cs}/K{sub d,Sr}) was estimated to be above 10{sup 4}. The breakthrough curve for Cs{sup +} through the column packed with CFC exhibited a symmetrical S-shaped profile, and this exchanger proved to be effective for the selective removal of radiocesium from waste solutions containing highly concentrated NaNO{sub 3}.« less
