What is "Depolarisationsmasse" in English?
The definition is:

depolarizer
Explanation:
"A substance which is supposed to reduce electrode polarization. The term was introduced when it was believed that the electrode polarization was due solely to gas evolution at the electrode and the action of the depolariser was to eliminate or prevent this process. Today views are different, but the term is still sometimes used, usually to denote the positive active material." Hope this helps -- Robin Stocks
