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 […]

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 […]

When overheated Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are prone to catching fire or even exploding. Yet they are used to power everything from smart watches to electric vehicles, thanks to the large amounts of energy they can store in small spaces. A recent research paper published in American Chemical Society’ Nano Letters offers a possible solution with […]

University of Cambridge researchers have discovered a potential new method for making high-performance magnets. They could be used in wind turbines and electric cars without the need for rare earth elements. The rare earth elements are almost exclusively sourced in China. The team from the University of Cambridge, working with colleagues from Austria, found a […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Texas at Austin researchers are tackling two of the bigger challenges facing electric vehicles: limited range and slow recharging. The researchers fabricated a new type of electrode for lithium-ion batteries that could unleash greater power and faster charging. They did this by creating thicker electrodes – the positively and negatively charged parts […]
