Corrosion in Batteries

  • Xiaoge Gregory Zhang


Zinc is one of the most commonly used battery electrode materials because of its low equilibrium potential, reversibility, compatibility with aqueous electrolytes, low equivalent weight, high specific energy, high volumetric energy density, abundance, low cost, low toxicity, and ease of handling [685]. The use of zinc has mainly been in primary (nonrechargeable) batteries, but developments have been made that allow zinc to be more widely used in secondary (rechargeable) batteries.
