Researchers at University College London (UCL) have created one-atom-thick ribbons made of phosphorus alloyed with arsenic that could dramatically improve the efficiency of devices such as batteries, supercapacitors and solar cells. The UCL researchers found they were able to conduct electricity at temperatures above -140° Celsius, while retaining the highly useful properties of the phosphorus-only […]

The tech relies on a new system that speeds up the development of catalysts for […]

A University of Cincinnati chemist envisions a future where every house is powered by renewable energy stored in safer low cost redox flow batteries. Jimmy Jiang and his team described their novel design in the journal Nature Communications. They have created a new battery that could have profound implications for the large-scale energy storage needed […]

The new development overcomes the persistent challenge of voltage decay and can lead to significantly higher energy storage capacity. The paper titled “A Li-rich layered oxide cathode with negligible voltage […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Chinese researchers have introduced a novel approach for the recovery and recycling of lithium from used Lithium Ion Batteries (LIBs). The team explored the technique by publishing in the journal Angewandte Chemie. Lithium-ion batteries provide our portable devices like tablets and cellular/mobiles – and increasingly also vehicles – with power. As the share of […]
