Texas A&M University researchers are one step closer to realizing their goal of creating a battery made entirely of polymers, which has the potential to charge and discharge much faster than traditional batteries. Polymers, a shorter smaller molecule than plastic, may offer a much better future to rechargeable batteries. A major hurdle to creating a […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Illinois at Chicago researchers report new research showing that a number of 2D materials, when incorporated into experimental lithium-air batteries as the catalyst, enabled a battery to hold up to 10 times more energy than lithium-air batteries containing traditional catalysts. Lithium-air batteries are poised to become the next revolutionary replacement for currently […]

University of Houston (UH) and Toyota Research Institute of America researchers have innovated a promising new version of high-energy magnesium batteries. With a chloride-free electrolyte and organic cathode boosting energy density and stability the potential applications range from electric vehicles to battery storage for renewable energy systems. The battery, about which the research paper published […]

Fluoride-based batteries have the potential to last up to eight times longer than today’s lithium ion technology. In a new study appearing in the journal Science, chemists at several institutions, including Caltech and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is managed by Caltech for NASA, as well as the Honda Research Institute and Lawrence Berkeley National […]

Elsevier is reporting that a team of researchers from the Plasma Physics Research Centre, Science and Research Branch of Islamic Azad University in Tehran, Iran, have discovered a way of making paper supercapacitors for electricity storage. At one sheet thick, these new supercapacitors can bend, fold, flex, and still hold electricity. The team’s research paper […]
