Battery ‘dream technology’ a step closer to reality with new discovery

“I call it a dream technology because sodium and sulfur are abundant, environmentally benign, and the lowest cost you think of”


A sodium-sulfur battery created by engineers at The University of Texas at Austin solves one of the biggest hurdles that has held back the technology as a commercially viable alternative to the ubiquitous lithium-ion batteries that power everything from smartphones to electric vehicles. Sodium ...

'Anti-aging' chemistry taken from nature overcomes next-gen lithium battery decay

"So, we thought, why not just try to replicate what nature already does, and put it inside a battery instead?"


For high-voltage lithium batteries using layered transition metal oxide cathodes, the chemical degradation of the battery's electrolytes results in rapid decay of its capacity, which poses substantial challenges to practical applications of this potential next generation of lithium ...

Oxidation-tolerant solid electrolyte provides high energy capacity for Li2S cathode

All-solid-state batteries closer to reality with the creation of a lithium sulfide cathode containing a solid electrolyte with high decomposition resistance


Recent advances on materials in development since the 1980’s at Osaka Prefecture University (OPU) bring all-solid-state batteries (ASSBs) a step closer towards reality. ASSBs use a solid electrolyte (SE) that separates the energy-generating parts (cathodes and anodes) and has attracted attention ...

Birnessite study offers insights for electrochemistry, energy storage


The adsorption of ions from the electrolyte at an electrode surface is a ubiquitous process, of use for both existing and emerging electrochemical energy technologies. But what happens when these ions penetrate very small spaces? To address this question, researchers at NC State re-examined the ...

Stabilizing gassy electrolytes could make ultra-low temperature batteries safer

New separator improves battery safety and its performance in the extreme cold


A new technology could dramatically improve the safety of lithium-ion batteries that operate with gas electrolytes at ultra-low temperatures. Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego developed a separator--the part of the battery that serves as a barrier between the anode and ...


image description
Significant progress in lithium-air battery development


Research led by the University of Liverpool, in partnership with Johnson Matthey PLC and Loughborough University is making significant progress in the development of stable and practical electrolytes for lithium-oxygen batteries. The lithium-oxygen (Li-O2) battery (or lithium-air battery), ...
