A three-year project by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, in collaboration with Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has made a breakthrough in improving lithium-ion batteries.

Researchers used a coating called PEDOT to completely protect each particle of the cathode — inside and out — from reacting with the electrolyte, which improves lithium-ion battery cycle life and safety.
