A Tohoku University research team has developed liquid-sulfur/sulfide composite cathodes that enable high-rate magnesium batteries. Magnesium rechargeable batteries show immense promise for a greener future because of their energy density, safety, and cost. But the lack of high-performance cathode materials has impeded their development. Magnesium rechargeable batteries (MRBs), where high-capacity Mg metal is used as […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) scientists have developed a simple way to better evaluate the potential of novel materials to store or release heat on demand in your home, office, or other building in a way that more efficiently manages the building’s energy use. Their work product, featured in Nature Energy, proposes a new […]

Linköping University researchers in Sweden have developed a molecule that absorbs energy from sunlight and stores it in chemical bonds. A possible long-term use of the molecule is to capture solar energy efficiently and store it for later consumption. The team’s research paper has been published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, JACS. […]

The plant product cellulose is the most abundant form of biomass globally and can be converted into useful products such as biofuels. However, the processing of this biopolymer is cumbersome, owing to its […]

A UCLA study shows that capturing carbon dioxide and turning it into commercial products, such as fuels or construction materials, could become a new global industry. UCLA, the University of Oxford and five other institutions’ research has been published in Nature. The paper is the most comprehensive study to date investigating the potential future scale […]
