Researchers at Georgia Tech backed by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory have developed a promising new cathode and electrolyte system that replaces expensive metals and traditional liquid electrolyte with lower cost transition metal fluorides and a solid polymer electrolyte. This opens a potential for less expensive, lighter and safer batteries that are a vital need […]

Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie scientists have fabricated a nanomaterial made from nanoparticles of a titanium oxide compound for lithium sulfur battery cathodes. The titanium oxide, Ti4O7 is characterized by an extremely large surface area, and was tested as a cathode material in lithium sulfur batteries. Presently lithium batteries are one of the best […]

Researchers at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) are using organic peptides to improve the properties of lithium ion batteries. Peptides are molecules of amino acids that are a type of biological molecule. The UMBC team has found one that binds strongly to lithium manganese nickel oxide (LMNO), a material that can be used […]

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’s 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) […]
