Fossil-fuelled energy use represents around 80% of global greenhouse (GHG) emissions, a huge proportion of which is used to heat and power our buildings.
Oxidic Nanomaterials for High Density Storage in Li-ion Batteries
Chemistry and Biosciences
Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round
The oxides of a number of materials are very appealing candidates as substitutes for conventional anodes in lithium-ion batteries because of their high theoretical capacity, high electric conductivity low potential of lithium ion intercalation, as well as superior electron mobilities, with one such material, SnO2 being particularly appealing.
