(54) Title (EN): HALOGEN-BASED ELECTROLYTE CONTAINING CARBON
(54) Title (FR): ÉLECTROLYTE À BASE D'HALOGÈNE CONTENANT DU CARBONE

(57) Abstract:
(EN): The present invention provides an electrolyte including a zinc halide salt, water, and carbon powder. The zinc halide salt is selected from ZnBr2, ZnCl2, ZnI2, or any combination thereof. The electrolyte may include from about 25 wt% to about 50 wt% of the zinc halide salt. The electrolyte may include from about 25 wt% to about 50 wt% of the carbon powder. The zinc halide salt preferably includes ZnBr2. The electrolyte may include 28 wt% to about 37 wt% of ZnBr2. The electrolyte may be used in zinc-halide rechargeable electrochemical cells (e.g. storage batteries).
(FR): La présente invention concerne un électrolyte comprenant un sel d'halogénure de zinc, de l'eau et une poudre de carbone. Le sel d'halogénure de zinc est choisi parmi ZnBr2, ZnCl2, ZnI2, ou toute combinaison de ces derniers. L'électrolyte peut comprendre d'environ 25 à environ 50 % en poids du sel d'halogénure de zinc. L'électrolyte peut comprendre d'environ 25 à environ 50 % en poids de la poudre de carbone. Le sel d'halogénure de zinc est de préférence ZnBr2. L'électrolyte peut comprendre de 28 % en poids à environ 37 % en poids de ZnBr2. L'électrolyte peut être utilisé dans des piles électrochimiques rechargeables zinc-halogénure (par exemple, des accumulateurs).
