What is the 'Lithium Battery'?

Most of Batteries consist of the anode (positive pole) and cathode (negative pole) and electrolyte, and be classified by the positive and negative pole’s material. The battery which uses the Lithium as a cathode is called ‘Lithium Battery’ and the electron flow which is made by the Lithium’s oxidation reaction makes the electricity energy.

Li → Li+  + e- SOCI2 → SO2 + S + CI-

The battery is classified in detail depends on the anode’s material, and in case of battery which uses the chloride thionyl(SOCI2) as a positive pole activation material, the chemical reaction is finished by de-oxidation process of the electron which made by the Lithium’s oxidation reaction and the chloride thionyl which made by the Lithium positive ion (Li+).

SOCI2 → SO2 + S + CI-

Total chemical reaction formula is as follows.

4Li + 2SOCI2 → SO2 + S + 4LiCI 전체화학반응식

So, the 3.6V nominal voltage is achieved by potential differences which made by oxidation an de-oxidation reaction between the Lithium cathode and the chloride thionyl anode.
