Investigations on the prospective use of aluminium as anode for power sources have been reviewed in this paper. The ultimate aim of these investigations is to make a commercially viable aluminium-air cell for automobile propulsion. The difficulties faced in this field are the suppression of self corrosion and gassing of aluminium in alkaline solutions. The air electrode i.e. the cathode used in aluminium batteries, which has been considered hitherto is the breathing-type carbon element or pressurised porous electrode used in fuel cells. Pressurised porous electrode is found to be more advantageous and compatible with the anode reaction on the basis of electrode kinetics
