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 […]

Penn State researchers are engineering a dramatically longer-lasting, faster-charging and safer lithium metal battery design. Described in Nature Energy the researchers developed a three-dimensional, cross-linked polymer sponge that attaches to the metal plating of a battery anode. Donghai Wang, professor of mechanical engineering and the principal investigator of the project said, “This project aims to […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… MIT researchers have found a way to substantially reduce metal air battery corrosion, making it possible for such batteries to have much longer shelf lives. Metal-air batteries are one of the lightest and most compact types of batteries available, but they can have a major limitation: When not in use, they degrade quickly, as […]
