Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) have developed a method to predict the atomic structure of sodium-ion batteries. The findings, which have been published in the journal Science, are expected to significantly speed up research into sodium-ion batteries.

Researchers believe Na-ion batteries have potential to replace lithium batteries in applications where energy density is not the primary consideration; this would include stationary energy storage systems for example.

Scientists in China develop high-performance lithium-sulfur battery cathode

Wed, 04/22/2020 - 14:06 -- Paul Crompton

Scientists at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) at the Chinese Academy of Sciences have developed a cathode they claim will increase the performance capabilities of lithium-sulfur batteries.

Teams led by professor Jian Liu (pictured) and professor Zhongshuai Wu have increased the catalytic activity and sulfur loading of lithium-sulfur batteries by using a mesoporous carbon nanoreactor decorated with Fe1-xS electrocatalyst nanoparticles (Fe1-xS-NC) as the cathode.
