Chapter 12

Zinc-air and other types of metal-air batteries

G.E. Gilligan; D. Qu    University of Massachusetts, Boston, MA, USA

Abstract

Zinc-air batteries are of great interest to observers of metal-air battery chemistry. These batteries have been around for a long time in the primary form and now seem to be reaching the point where they may appear on the market in medium- to large-scale applications in the secondary form. Though not the most energy-dense batteries that exist in theory, the chemistry of zinc-air cells is very approachable with current technologies and highly cost effective. This chapter details the fundamentals of zinc-air cell chemistry, the factors which could make or break a desirable commercialization of this technology, ...
