Scientists have been hoping to expand the power storage capacity of lithium-ion batteries by converting graphite anode to lithium or silicon, where users will no longer have to worry about the battery of smartphones, nor the distance between charging stations when driving electric vehicles. Now, American scientists have discovered another alternative material that possesses reasonably well efficiency: phosphorus. ...  more

New Electrolyte Developed by Stanford Team Could Lead to Breakthrough in Commercialization of Lithium-Metal Batteries

published: 2020-07-02 18:30 | editor | category: News
Electrolyte, which plays the crucial role of transporting ions between the cathode and the anode of a battery, has been both the strength and the weakness of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. Currently, the carbonate electrolyte that is inside conventional Li-ion batteries has a decent level of conductivity and is low in cost. However, its high flammability poses a serious safety risk. ...  more
