This thesis was suggested by the work of Mr. B. J. Pozorski and Mr. W. Adashek. Mr. Pozorski investigated the inhibiting qualities of various separators when placed between two platinum electrodes in a copper sulfate solution. Mr. Adashek worked on the efficiency of various lead plating solutions using lead electrodes and electrlyes containing soluble lead salts. Combining the work of these men, the author is investigating the prohibitive plating properties of various separator using a lead plating solution. By so doing, the investigation has a closer relationship to the actual performance of the storage battery .
