Scientists’ research at Tokyo University of Science led by Prof Shinichi Komaba discusses the recent advances, promises, and limitations of potassium-ion batteries. Concerns about the scarcity of lithium and other materials necessary in the now-ubiquitous lithium-ion batteries have recently driven many researchers to look for alternatives, such as sodium and potassium. Our modern lifestyle would […]

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign researchers show a technology that charges batteries for electronic devices could provide fresh water from seawater. Electricity running through a salt water-filled battery draws the salt ions out of the water. Illinois mechanical science and engineering professor Kyle Smith and graduate student Rylan Dmello’s work has been published in the […]
