Metal-air batteries are one of the lightest and most compact types of batteries available, but they can have a major limitation: When not in use, they degrade quickly, as […]

University of Sydney researchers have found a solution for one of the biggest stumbling blocks of zinc-air batteries. Zinc-air batteries could overtake conventional lithium-ion batteries as the power source of choice in electronic devices. Zinc-air batteries operate with zinc metal and oxygen from the air. Due to the global abundance of zinc metal, these batteries […]

Georgia Institute of Technology materials researchers have created a nanofiber that could help enable the next generation of rechargeable batteries and increase the efficiency of hydrogen production from water electrolysis. In a study published in Nature Communications and sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the researchers describe the development of double perovskite nanofiber that can […]

Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) scientists have introduced a new way to increase energy efficiency of metal-air batteries by substituting platinum with perovskite enhanced by simply adding a kind of conducting polymer, polypyrrole. The breakthrough research, led by Professor Hyun-Kon Song and Professor Guntae Kim of the institute’s department of Energy and […]

Yang Shao-Horn, an MIT associate professor of mechanical engineering and materials science and engineering has made significant progress on a technology that could lead to batteries with up to three times the energy density of any battery that currently exists. Shao-Horn said many groups have been pursuing work on lithium-air batteries, a technology that has […]
