Pour remplacer les électrolytes organiques liquides potentiellement inflammables des batteries Li-ion, les chercheurs de Saft, filiale de Total, et ceux de l’Institut de chimie et des matériaux Paris Est (CNRS/Université Paris-Est Créteil) ont mis au point une batterie à électrolyte solide à partir d’un borohydrure conducteur ionique et d’une anode nanocomposite à base d’hydrures métalliques de magnésium et de titane. Cette batterie présente une capacité de stockage élevée et réversible, et conserve 85 % de sa valeur initiale pendant les 25 premiers cycles de charge/décharge. Ces résultats sont publiés dans « Journal of Power Sources ».

Three-Dimensional Porous Graphene Networks and Hybrids for Lithium-Ion Batteries and Supercapacitors

Three-Dimensional Porous Graphene Networks and Hybrids for Lithium-Ion Batteries and Supercapacitors | Accumulators, capacitors, and energy storage systems | Scoop.it
Developing novel materials for energy-storage applications is an important research
field to address current energy-related issues. Zhao and coworkers highlight recent
research progress on three-dimensional porous graphene networks (3DPGNs), including
graphene aerogel and graphene foam, for lithium-ion batteries and supercapacitors.
The authors summarize the synthetic strategies and structural nature of 3DPGNs and
discuss their state of the art for uses in electrochemical energy storage. On the
basis of current research advancements, they provide a perspective of future research
trends in this rapidly developing field.

Assembling colloidal matter with an opto-thermophoretic strategy (w/video) | Accumulators, capacitors, and energy storage systems | Scoop.it
Researchers have developed various assembly approaches, including self-assembly and electric/magnetic field directed assembly, to build diverse colloidal matters. These techniques feature high throughput but with limited structural configurations. Specifically, some of the techniques highly rely on the physical performance of the colloidal particles. In new work, researchers have developed a versatile colloidal assembly strategy - termed opto-thermophoretic assembly (OTA) - to build artificial colloidal matter in a wide range of colloidal materials, sizes, and shape.

Recipe for safer lithium batteries -- Just add diamonds: Nanodiamonds can prevent short-circuits and fires in lithium batteries

Recipe for safer lithium batteries -- Just add diamonds: Nanodiamonds can prevent short-circuits and fires in lithium batteries | Accumulators, capacitors, and energy storage systems | Scoop.it
While lithium-ion batteries, widely used in mobile devices from cell phones to laptops, have one of the longest lifespans of commercial batteries today, they also have been behind a number of recent meltdowns and fires due to short-circuiting in mobile devices. In hopes of preventing more of these hazardous malfunctions researchers have developed a recipe that can turn electrolyte solution -- a key component of most batteries -- into a safeguard against the chemical process that leads to battery-related disasters.

Breakthrough in magnesium batteries: Nanostructured cathode, understanding of new electrolyte lead to greater efficiency

Breakthrough in magnesium batteries: Nanostructured cathode, understanding of new electrolyte lead to greater efficiency | Accumulators, capacitors, and energy storage systems | Scoop.it
Magnesium batteries are safe -- unlike traditional lithium ion batteries, they are not flammable or subject to exploding -- but until now their ability to store energy has been limited. Researchers have reported a new design for the battery cathode, drastically increasing the storage capacity and upending conventional wisdom that the magnesium-chloride bond must be broken before inserting magnesium into the host.

LabRat's curator insight, August 16, 6:33 AM
[...] Published in Advanced Materials today, a paper authored by chemical engineering researchers from the University of Sydney and Nanyang Technological University outlines a new three-stage method to overcome this problem. According to lead author Professor Yuan Chen, from the University of Sydney's Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies, the new method can be used to create bifunctional oxygen electrocatalysts for building rechargeable zinc-air batteries from scratch.
[...] These new catalysts are produced through the simultaneous control of the: 1) composition, 2) size and 3) crystallinity of metal oxides of earth-abundant elements such as iron, cobalt and nickel. They can then be applied to build rechargeable zinc-air batteries.
