A Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) team of researchers claims to have made yet another step towards finding a solution to accelerate the commercialization of silicon anode for lithium-ion batteries. A new approach developed by a team of researchers, led by Prof. Jaephil Cho (School of Energy and Chemical Engineering) could hold […]

The National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) researchers have developed an anode material for lithium-ion rechargeable batteries by forming nanoparticles made of silicon metal composites on metal substrates. The resulting anode material has a high capacity – almost twice as high as conventional materials – and a long cycling life. The results could lead to […]

Scientists from the Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials (DWI), RWTH Aachen University and Hanyang University in Seoul have significantly improved a key component for the development of Redox Flow battery energy storage systems. The team has developed a hydrophobic membrane that keeps its barrier functions in place as it does not swell in water. The […]

Researchers at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have identified a whole new class of high-performing organic molecules that’s inspired by vitamin B2. Your humble writer likes these posts about making new ideas from suggestions sourced in unrelated fields most of all. The new high-performing organic molecules can safely store electricity from intermittent energy […]

Paul Scherrer Institut materials researchers have developed a very simple and cost-effective procedure for significantly enhancing the performance of conventional lithium-ion rechargeable batteries by up to 300%. They said the procedure is scalable in size, so the use of rechargeable batteries would be optimized in all areas of application – whether in wristwatches, smartphones, laptops […]
