University of Illinois Grainger College of Engineering researchers have created a high-voltage microbattery (> 9 V), with high-energy and -power density, unparalleled by any existing battery design. Translating electrochemical performance of large format batteries to microscale power sources has been a long-standing technological challenge, limiting the ability of batteries to power microdevices, microrobots and implantable […]

Pusan National University researchers have invented a new sodium ion anode material. They are using a recently developed pyrolyzed quinacridones, new carbonaceous anode materials, that are efficient, easily prepared, and exhibit excellent electrochemical properties, including high sodium-ion storage performance and cycling stability. Their study paper was made available online on October of 2022 and will […]

A new paper published in Science, Meng and colleagues laid out their vision for electrolyte design in future generations of batteries. Designing a battery is a three-part process. You need a positive electrode, you need […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A joint research group from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin has investigated new combinations of electrolyte solutions and electrode materials for sodium ion battery chemistry. The market for rechargeable batteries is growing rapidly, but the necessary raw materials are limited. The study findings have been reported entitled “Co‐Intercalation […]

DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory researchers reported a polymer-based electrolyte makes for batteries that keep working – and don’t catch fire – when heated to over 140° F. Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries power phones, laptops, other personal electronics and electric cars, and are even used to store energy generated by solar panels. But if the temperature of […]
