Laser treatment found to boost battery performance

As the world transitions to renewable power sources such as solar and wind, there is a growing need for high-performance rechargeable batteries to store the energy generated by this intermittent energy source. Today's lithium-ion ...

Stable sodium anodes for sodium metal batteries

Sodium secondary batteries have a similar working principle to lithium secondary batteries but are low-cost and are expected to serve as a powerful supplement to lithium secondary batteries. Solid-state batteries offer high-safety ...

Lithium hydride mediates hydrogenolysis of anilines to arenes

A research group led by Prof. Guo Jianping and Prof. Chen Ping from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in collaboration with Prof. Wu An'an from Xiamen University, revealed ...

Improving battery safety and efficiency for electric vehicles

As electric vehicles and personal portable electronics become more ubiquitous, researchers are trying to solve some of the major limitations of current lithium-ion battery technology, which uses a graphite anode and a lithium-based ...

Energy storage materials built from nano-sized molecular blocks

Molecules of the rare metallic element niobium can be used as molecular building blocks to design electrochemical energy storage materials. Mark Rambaran, Department of Chemistry at UmeƄ University, presents in his thesis ...
