Abstract The presence of inhibitors in chemical current sources (CCS) can reduce self-discharge of the electrodes, increase the storage and service lives of the sources, and improve their electrical characteristics. To reduce the corrosion of zinc anodes in CCS, they are amalgamated with 2-10% of metallic mercury relative to the mass of the zinc. As inhibitors for lead-zinc cells with sulfuric acid electrolyte, combination additives have been devised on the basis of mixtures of organic compounds and salts of heavy metals (Cd, Sn, Ti) which have protective properties as good as those of mercury salts. These mixtures are efficient inhibitors of acid corrosion of zinc, giving a degree of protection of over 99%.
