Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) scientists have discovered a new catalyst material’s ability to significantly improve lithium-sulfur battery life, opening doors to their near-future practical commercial realization. Lithium-sulfur batteries, given their light weight and theoretical high capacities, are a promising alternative to conventional lithium-ion batteries for large-scale energy storage systems, drones, electric vehicles, […]

Chalmers University of Technology researchers recently unveiled a promising breakthrough for the lithium sulfur battery, using a catholyte with the help of a graphene sponge. Lithium sulfur batteries, which offer a theoretical energy density more than five times that of lithium ion batteries could meet the demands of an electric future when new battery technologies […]

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 […]

Materials researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI in Switzerland collaborating with the Université Grenoble Alpes (France), have developed a method that could enable a breakthrough for the lithium-sulfur battery. This could be very useful because: In theory, lithium-sulfur batteries can deliver considerably more energy than today’s conventional lithium-ion batteries, but current prototypes show a […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) researchers have developed a nickel-based metal organic framework to hold onto polysulfide molecules in the cathodes of lithium-sulfur batteries and extend the batteries’ life spans. A promising new battery chemistry is the lithium-sulfur battery, which can hold as much as four times more energy in a given mass than typical […]
