  • 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. Digital 50 Daily Industry News RSS Feed

  • 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.

    You say potato, I say...battery?

  • 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.

    One battery chemistry to rule them all?

  • 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.
