Texas A&M University researchers have developed a new battery technology platform that is completely metal free, degradable, recyclable, non-toxic and safer across the board. The all-polypeptide organic radical battery composed of redox-active amino-acid macromolecules solves the problem of recyclability. The components of the new battery platform can be degraded on demand in acidic conditions to […]

Washington University in St. Louis scientists have developed a stable, anode-free sodium ion battery that is highly efficient, will be less expensive and is significantly smaller than a traditional lithium ion battery. At the moment for batteries lithium-ion is the best we have as far as energy density and convenience. The Washington University in St. […]

University of Utah chemical engineers have learned more about the nature of lithium-ion batteries that could lead to new batteries that recharge much faster. Perhaps the most frustrating limitation of owning an all-electric car is how long it takes to fully charge the battery. For a Tesla, for example, it takes about 40 minutes to […]

Stanford University scientists have identified a new class of solid materials that could replace flammable liquid electrolytes in lithium-ion batteries. The discovery could help battery researchers design the first solid electrolytes that are safe, cheap and efficient. According to the scientists the low-cost materials, made of lithium, boron and sulfur, could improve the safety and […]

POSTECH Professor Byoungwoo Kang’s research team has uncovered a new Li-ion battery electrode material that can achieve high-energy density and high power capability per volume without reducing particle size. With Tesla in the lead, the electric vehicle market is growing around the world. Unlike conventional cars that use internal combustion engines, electric cars are commonly […]
