Power Sources: Research and Development in Non-Mechanical Electrical Power Sources presents the developments in the production of batteries and other power sources. This book discusses the technological advances and limitless possibilities in the production of various types of batteries. Organized into 40 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the maximum steady potential for the fully oxidized pyrolytic graphite. This text then explores the competition between zincate and surfactants for absorption sites. Other chapters consider the main factors influencing the discharge of alkaline manganese dioxide cells. This book discusses as well the significance of the porous nature of manganese dioxides in relation to their battery activity. The final chapter deals with thermoelectric power, which is being used for cathodic corrosion protection, instrumentation, communication, and navigational aids. This book is a valuable resource for scientists, technologists, and researchers. Electrical and electronic engineers will also find this book extremely useful.
