It transports sodium – which is found everywhere on earth – instead of lithium. The lithium batteries that power our electronic devices and electric vehicles have a number of drawbacks. The electrolyte – the medium that enables electrons and […]

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 […]

University of Akron’s Professor Dr. Yu Zhu’s research group is trying to prevent if a powerhouse of energy – a lithium battery – failed. An electric or hybrid car would be rendered useless and a much-needed biomedical device would hamper or endanger a patient’s health. The power source for things like implanted medical devices, electric […]

Researchers at TU Delft have identified a new huge potential of nanocrystals in fuel cells.  The Delft researchers are the first to document the idea accurately with their second article on the subject. The latest paper was published in the scientific journal, Advanced Functional Materials. The addition of the extremely small nanocrystals to a solid […]
