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 […]

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne chemical engineers have invented a solar-powered artificial leaf, built on a novel electrode which is transparent and porous. The artificial leaf is capable of harvesting water from the atmosphere for conversion into hydrogen fuel. The semiconductor-based technology is scalable and easy to prepare. The paper reporting the results has been […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Argonne National Laboratory scientists explain upgrading the hunt for electrolytes with artificial intelligence that could enable revolutionary battery chemistries. A new paper published in Science, Meng and colleagues laid out their vision for electrolyte design in future generations of batteries. Designing a battery is a three-part process. You need a positive electrode, you need […]

University of Michigan scientists developed a new kind of solar panel achieving 9% efficiency in converting water into hydrogen and oxygen – mimicking a crucial step in natural photosynthesis. Outdoors, it represents a major leap in the technology, nearly 10 times more efficient than solar water-splitting experiments of its kind. But the biggest benefit is […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… The Caltech Space Solar Power Project (SSPP) prototype launched into orbit, dubbed the Space Solar Power Demonstrator (SSPD), will test several key components of an ambitious plan to harvest solar power in space and beam the energy back to Earth. Space solar power provides a way to tap into the practically unlimited supply of […]
