Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Cornell University scientists’ new research advances the design of solid-state batteries, a technology that is inherently safer and more energy-dense than today’s lithium-ion batteries, which rely on flammable liquid electrolytes for fast transfer of chemical energy stored in molecular bonds to electricity. By starting with liquid electrolytes and then transforming them into solid polymers […]

Brazil’s Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo is adding strength to case for lithium air batteries. Current lithium ion battery technology will probably not be able to handle the coming decades’ huge demand for energy. It is estimated that by 2050, electricity will make up 50% of the world’s energy mix. […]

While lithium-ion batteries are currently popular, it is expected that a new storage chemistry will be found soon, because lithium is not only expensive but limited in supply. […]

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 […]
