Texas A&M University researchers have developed a new battery technology platform that is completely metal free, degradable, recyclable, non-toxic and safer across the board. The all-polypeptide organic radical battery composed of redox-active amino-acid macromolecules solves the problem of recyclability. The components of the new battery platform can be degraded on demand in acidic conditions to […]

Washington University in St. Louis scientists have developed a stable, anode-free sodium ion battery that is highly efficient, will be less expensive and is significantly smaller than a traditional lithium ion battery. At the moment for batteries lithium-ion is the best we have as far as energy density and convenience. The Washington University in St. […]

University of Utah chemical engineers have learned more about the nature of lithium-ion batteries that could lead to new batteries that recharge much faster. Perhaps the most frustrating limitation of owning an all-electric car is how long it takes to fully charge the battery. For a Tesla, for example, it takes about 40 minutes to […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have identified a novel electrolyte that could be useful for next-generation lithium-ion batteries, increasing their power per weight without sacrificing the cycle life. Lithium-ion batteries have made possible the lightweight electronic devices whose portability we now take for granted, as well as the rapid expansion of electric vehicle production. […]

Flash sintering is a ceramic processing technique […]
