The kinetics of dissolution of zinc in acidic zinc chloride solution have been investigated in order to understand and optimize its performance in zinc-chlorine hydrate battery. Polarisation experiments were carried out using pure zinc rods and electrodeposited zinc as electrods. For a concentration change of zinc chloride from 0.5 to 1.5 M. the exchange current densities were found to vary from 1.4 to 2.4 mA/cm2 in the case of cast zinc rod electrodes, and from 2.2 to 6.2 mA/cm2 in the case of electrodepasited zinc; this increase is attributed to the greater reactivity as well as the increased surface area of the freshly electrodeposited zinc
