Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A Tohoku University research group has produced fresh insights about the release of oxygen in lithium-ion batteries, paving the way for more robust and safer high energy density batteries. As rechargeable batteries get more powerful, the chance of batteries overheating – thermal runaway – increases. Seeking a way to make batteries safer, researchers have […]

Monash Energy Institute has created a longer-lasting, lighter, more sustainable rival to the lithium-ion batteries simply by adding sugar. The new battery performance level is essential for aviation, electric vehicles and submarines. The Monash team, assisted by CSIRO Manufacturing, report in Nature Communications that using a glucose-based additive on the positive electrode they have managed […]

A Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH) joint research team succeeded in improving ionic conductivity using electrostatic interface of polymer electrolytes. The POSTECH research team recently developed a polymer electrolyte without a “dead zone” – which lowers ion transport – thus accelerating the commercialization of all solid state batteries. As the demand for electric […]

An Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) Graduate University new study has put lithium sulfur batteries one step closer to becoming readily available. Rechargeable lithium sulfur batteries are promising candidates to sustainably meet the world’s energy demands. Rechargeable batteries are a necessity to meet the world’s growing energy demands in a sustainable fashion. But […]

North Carolina State University scientists are researching birnessite. Birnessite is a hydrated layered form of manganese oxide that can quickly store and release a variety of positive ions from electrolytes for many cycles. This makes it promising for use in high-power electrochemical energy storage, or in emerging electrochemical technologies such as desalination and rare element […]
