Machine learning model speeds up assessing catalysts for decarbonization technology from months to milliseconds

Scientists create computational model for identifying low-cost catalysts that convert biomass into fuels and useful chemicals with low carbon footprint


Next time you drive past farms or prairies and ponds on a rural road, look around. They are a rich source of biomass. That includes corn, soybeans, sugar cane, switchgrass, algae and other plant matter. These carbon-rich materials can be converted to liquid fuels and chemicals with many possible ...

Spinoff opens new frontier for batteries

Blue Current achieves success with a breakthrough material: Top priority has been to develop a completely safe battery


There is broad consensus that there is no silver bullet for climate change. Rather, many solutions will be required. What makes the challenge particularly daunting is the enormous reductions in greenhouse gas emissions needed in a short period of time. Some experts are concerned that there is not ...

Designing better battery electrolytes

Artificial intelligence and robot-assisted labs could help speed the search for better battery materials


Looking at the future of battery materials. Designing a battery is a three-part process. You need a positive electrode, you need a negative electrode, and — importantly — you need an electrolyte that works with both electrodes. An electrolyte is the battery component that transfers ions — ...

Researchers now able to predict battery lifetimes with machine learning

Technique could reduce costs of battery development


Imagine a psychic telling your parents, on the day you were born, how long you would live. A similar experience is possible for battery chemists who are using new computational models to calculate battery lifetimes based on as little as a single cycle of experimental data. In a new study, ...

Machine learning program for games inspires development of groundbreaking scientific tool

New AI tool models in record time the behavior of clusters of nanoparticles


We learn new skills by repetition and reinforcement learning. Through trial and error, we repeat actions leading to good outcomes, try to avoid bad outcomes and seek to improve those in between. Researchers are now designing algorithms based on a form of artificial intelligence that uses ...

Wet electrolyte could be a key to inexpensive energy storage

Water containing battery electrolyte could enable cheaper, easier to produce batteries


For scientists working to create the next generation of batteries, water has typically been the enemy. For example, lithium-ion batteries typically need to be produced under extremely dry conditions for them to hold large amounts of charge. But a new discovery may show that a specific type of ...

New electrolyte for solid-state lithium-ion batteries

New battery material offers promise for the development of all-solid batteries


In the quest for the perfect battery, scientists have two primary goals: create a device that can store a great deal of energy and do it safely. Many batteries contain liquid electrolytes, which are potentially flammable. As a result, solid-state lithium-ion batteries, which consist of entirely ...

Argonne-related spinoff company charges up the battery world

Sepion Technologies is pursuing innovative new lithium battery technologies and recently secured Series A funding


For America to move fully away from fossil fuels and to a more sustainable energy economy, batteries are the key ingredient. For both electric vehicles and the power grid, new battery technologies will transform the energy equation behind how we live and how we move. As part of this effort, the ...

Why batteries can’t charge in minutes

Researchers find new issue complicating fast charging


Researchers find new issue complicating fast charging. Haste makes waste, as the saying goes. Such a maxim may be especially true of batteries, thanks to a new study that seeks to identify the reasons that cause the performance of fast charged lithium-ion batteries to degrade in electric ...

Less than a nanometer thick, stronger and more versatile than steel


Scientists create stable nanosheets containing boron and hydrogen atoms with potential applications in nanoelectronics and quantum information technology. What's thinner than thin? One answer is two-dimensional materials -- exotic materials of science with length and width but only one or two ...
