Tokyo University of Science researchers have developed a graphene separator embedded with platinum-doped gold nanoclusters for lithium sulfur batteries. But issues like formation of lithium polysulfides and lithium dendrites lead to capacity loss and raise safety concerns. Yet lithium sulfur batteries (LSBs) offer a higher energy storage potential and with the new separator have enhanced […]

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 […]
