A good geochemical correlation was observed between Au-Ag, As-Sb-Hg and Cu-Cd-Zn, which is considered as an affinity with epithermal systems containing Au-Ag mineralization.
As-Sb-Hg and Cu-Cd-Zn, which is considered as an affinity with epithermal systems containing Au-Ag mineralization.
Guanidine carbonate can be used in many fields including cement, PH materials, soap, cosmetic, testing of medicine intermediates such as Zn, Mn and Cd and so on.
Zn/Cu-vegetative batteries, bioelectrical characterizations, and primary cost analyses
Primary cost analyses showed that treated Zn/Cu-potato battery generates portable energy at ∼ 9 USD/kW h, which is 50-fold cheaper than the currently available 1.5 V AA alkaline cell (retail) or D cells (∼ 49 – 84 USD/kW h).
We now report on new fundamental studies on GAII in vegetative matter and on a simple way for significant performance improvement of Zn/Cu-vegetative battery.
The study brought about basic engineering data that make possible a systematic design of a Zn/Cu-potato electrolytic battery.
Its a Zn-Cu battery with the two rods inserted into a potato.
Volta and Daniell could be playing with the Zn electrode, but it took putting it with a MnO2 electrode to make it a commercial success that endures to this day.
The behavior of the lead-acid battery is remarkably similar to that of the zinc electrode in a Zn-manganese oxide alkaline battery or for that matter to the lithium thionyl chloride battery.
