An international team of scientists, including a professor of chemistry from the University of Bristol has worked out a way to improve energy storage devices called supercapacitors, by designing a new class of detergents chemically related to laxatives. Their paper, published today in the journal Nature Materials, explained why these detergents, called ionic liquids, are […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is announcing a new zinc-polyiodide redox flow battery that uses an electrolyte that has more than two times the energy density of the next-best flow battery and may exceed lithium-ion. The new zinc-polyiodide redox flow battery is described in the team’s paper published in Nature Communications. The zinc-polyiodide redox energy […]
