Magnesium-meta-dinitrobenzene, hereafter referred to as MgIDNB, organic cells are considered as a high energy density primary power source, though lacking in a high power density capability. To improve the current drain characteristics of the DNB, electrolytic manganese dioxide is incorporated in the cathode. The cathode variables are optimised after selection of suitable grid. Fifteen percent of manganese dioxide additive to the cathode mix is found to deliver good reduction efficiency at moderate current drain. Performance results of MgIDNB cell at moderate current drain at room temperature (30°C) and temperature down to -2O0Care reported. High energy density per unit weight, voltage stability ti11 80% of its capacity, low cost and availability of DNB are the importantifnd attractive features of this organic battery system.
