THACKERAY, Michael. Twenty golden years of battery R&D at CSIR, 1974-1994. S.Afr.j.chem. (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.64, pp.61-66. ISSN 1996-840X.

This paper is a personal reflection of 20 years of sodium- and lithium-based battery R&D in South Africa between 1974 and 1994. The impact of the innovative materials science and engineering research conducted during this period is highlighted by the later successful implementation of batteries in powering practical systems, as well as in technology licensing.

Keywords : CSIR; battery; Zebra; sodium-metal chloride; sodium-sulphur; LiAl/FeSx; lithium-ion; spinel.
