  • Patent number: 10550000
    Abstract: A secondary battery includes: a cathode; an anode including a carbon material; and non-aqueous electrolytic solution. A photoelectron spectrum of oxygen 1s is obtained from an analysis of the anode by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. A first peak positioned in vicinity of 1360 reciprocal centimeters and a second peak positioned in vicinity of 1580 reciprocal centimeters are obtained from an analysis of the carbon material by Raman spectroscopy. A half band width ?W1 of the photoelectron spectrum is about 3 electron volts or more. A half band width ?W2 of the second peak is about 19 reciprocal centimeters or more. A ratio I1/I2 of intensity I1 of the first peak to intensity I2 of the second peak is from about 0.15 to about 0.3 both inclusive.

  • Patent number: 8726923
    Abstract: A safety valve coupled to a container to release liquid within the container. The container defines an opening surrounded by a container surface. The safety valve includes a housing defining an interior containing a fusible member for actuating a plug between a closed position and an open position to release the liquid upon melting the fusible member. A main body has a first end for coupling to the housing and a second end for coupling to the opening of the container. The main body second end includes a main body surface defining axial bores for receiving screws to fix the main body to the housing. Upon coupling the safety valve to the container, a small gap is formed between the container surface and the main body surface to limit loosening of the screws.
