The modern trend in lead/acid battery design is towards the maintenance-free (MF) type. The latter includes vented cells with excess electrolyte as well as pressure-regulated valve cells with either gelled or absorbed electrolyte. The authors examine the effects of both sodium silicate, used in gelled electrolyte MF cells, and dissolved antimony species Sb(III) in the electrolyte (which could arise due to corrosion of low-antimony grid supports) on the kinetics of hydrogen evolution occurring on lead/acid battery negative electrodes with different grid materials.
