Stepstone for sustainable batteries – greener carbons

Project HiQ-CARB aims to provide new carbons with a superior performance and a low carbon footprint for future green batteries in Europe

08-Jun-2021

Lithium-ion batteries require in addition to lithium metal a number of sophisticated functional materials for their performance. Some of them sound rather unspectacular: conductive additives. In fact, conductive additives like carbon black or carbon nanotubes are a decisive component for the ...

What we know about water may have just changed dramatically

New research points to a potentially strong impact from water purification to drug manufacturing

08-Jun-2021

Water is weird - and yet so important. In fact, it is one of the most unusual molecules on Earth. It boils at a temperature it shouldn't. It expands and floats when it is in the solid-state. Its surface tension is higher than it should be. Now, new research published in the journal Nature has ...

Enantiomorph distribution maps for metals and metallic alloys

07-Jun-2021

The spatially resolved determination of which of the two enantiomorphic structural variants - the left-handed or the right-handed - of a chiral phase is present in a polycrystalline material is the focus of a publication in Science Advances. With the EBSD (electron backscatter diffraction) -based ...

The biodegradable battery - an ecological miracle

New mini-capacitor consists of carbon, cellulose, glycerin and table salt

07-Jun-2021

The number of data-transmitting microdevices, for instance in packaging and transport logistics, will increase sharply in the coming years. All these devices need energy, but the amount of batteries would have a major impact on the environment. Empa researchers have developed a biodegradable ...

Electrochemical cell harvests lithium from seawater

The system offers an economical way to source essential battery material

07-Jun-2021

Lithium is a vital element in the batteries that power electric vehicles, but soaring lithium demand is expected to exhaust land-based reserves by 2080. KAUST researchers have now developed an economically viable system that can extract high-purity lithium from seawater. The oceans contain about ...

Isolating an elusive missing link

Scientists have, for the first time, isolated and fully characterised an elusive intermediate in the Water Oxidation Reaction

04-Jun-2021

The Water Oxidation Reaction (WOR) is one of the most important reactions on the planet since it is the source of nearly all the atmosphere's oxygen. Understanding its intricacies can hold the key to improve the efficiency of the reaction. Unfortunately, the reaction's mechanisms are complex and ...

New insights into switchable MOF structures

03-Jun-2021

Metal-organic framework compounds (MOFs) are widely used in gas storage, material separation, sensor technology or catalysis. A team led by Prof. Dr. Stefan Kaskel, TU Dresden, has now investigated a special class of these MOFs at the MX beamlines of BESSY II. These are "switchable" MOFs that can ...
