Rice University scientists show in simulations how carbon nanomaterials may be optimized to replace the expensive platinum in cathodes for electricity-generating fuel cells. The plan is for nitrogen doped carbon nanotubes or modified graphene nanoribbons to be suitable replacements for platinum for fast oxygen reduction, the key reaction in fuel cells that transform chemical energy […]

A research team from the University of Alberta (U of A) has used carbon nanomaterials to develop next generation batteries capable of charging faster and lasting longer than today‚Äôs standard lithium ion batteries. The new and now rechargeable Lithium Carbon battery with this dual element storage mechanism of Lithium and Carbon induced with Fluorine (Li-CF) […]
