University of Texas researchers and Seoul National University have designed a new manganese and sodium ion based material that might replace many lithium ion batteries. The new chemistry offers a potentially lower-cost, more eco-friendly option to energize next generation devices and electric cars. In the battle of the batteries, lithium-ion technology is the reigning champion, […]






Chinese scientists have transformed rusty stainless steel mesh into electrodes with outstanding electrochemical properties for potassium-ion batteries. The scientists have made good use of a waste while finding an innovative solution to a technical problem. The research team reported their findings in the journal Angewandte Chemie. They describe that the rust is converted directly into […]






University of Houston (UH) researchers have discovered a new material that has proven an effective anode for acid and alkaline batteries, including emerging aqueous metal-ion batteries. Importantly, the material offers the promise of safe, long-lasting batteries that work across a range of temperatures and is quite low cost. Modern batteries power everything from cars to […]






Stanford University scientists have developed a way to wirelessly deliver electricity to moving objects. The technology could one day charge electric vehicles and personal devices like medical implants and cell phones. The press release makes the point if electric cars could recharge while driving down a highway, it would virtually eliminate concerns about their range […]






Berkeley National Laboratory scientists have made a surprising discovery that could fix lithium-sulfur battery capacity fading. But for the capacity fading, lithium-sulfur batteries have great potential as a low-cost, high-energy, energy storage medium for both vehicle and grid applications. Gao Liu the corresponding author of the paper research paper said, “There’s a lot of demand […]
