Formate is a nonflammable liquid or solid material that can be used like hydrogen or methanol to power a fuel cell and generate electricity. The describing paper has been published in the journal Cell Press Physical Sciences. The […]

University of Maryland researchers studying how lithium batteries fail have developed a new technology that could enable next-generation electric vehicles (EVs) and other devices that are less prone to battery fires while increasing energy storage. The innovative method described in a paper published in the journal Nature, suppresses the growth of lithium dendrites – damaging […]

Kyushu University researchers have developed a new hydrogen energy carrier material capable storing hydrogen energy efficiently and potentially more cheaply. Each molecule can store one electron from hydrogen at room temperature, store it for up to three months, and can be its own catalyst to extract said electron. Moreover, as the compound is made primarily […]

Tokyo University of Science researchers have developed a graphene separator embedded with platinum-doped gold nanoclusters for lithium sulfur batteries. But issues like formation of lithium polysulfides and lithium dendrites lead to capacity loss and raise safety concerns. Yet lithium sulfur batteries (LSBs) offer a higher energy storage potential and with the new separator have enhanced […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers have upended what’s known about how rechargeable batteries function. Rechargeable battery performance could be improved by a new understanding of how they work at the molecular level. For decades, researchers have assumed that the inevitable filmy buildup on electrodes inside rechargeable batteries is the driver of performance loss. Research shows […]
