  1. 1. Lignin- and PAN-based carbon fibres as negative electrodes for alkali-ion batteries

    Author : Kevin Peuvot; Göran Lindbergh; Dan Zenkert; Enn Lust; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hard carbon; lithium-ion batteries; sodium-ion batteries; potassium-ion batteries; lignin-based carbon fibres; PAN-based carbon fibres; free-standing electrodes; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The development of sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) and potassium-ion batteries (KIBs) have accelerated since they can now reach similar gravimetric energy densities as lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) but with a lower environmental impact. Hard carbon is the most common negative electrode for SIBs and KIBs and can be made from renewable resources such as lignin. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nano-structured 3D Electrodes for Li-ion Micro-batteries

    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aqueous exfoliation; vanadium oxide nanosheets; molybdenum oxide nanosheets; energy storage; photocatalysis; Inorganic Chemistry; oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : Two-dimensional (2D) transition metal oxides (TMOs) are a category of materials which have unique physical and chemical properties compared to their bulk counterparts. However, the synthesis of 2D TMOs commonly includes the use of environmental threats such as organic solvents. READ MORE

  4. 4. Li2O2 quantification in non-aqueous Li-O2 batteries with binder-free cathodes

    Author : Chenjuan Liu; Torbjörn Gustafsson; Martin Sahlberg; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The non-aqueous Li-air (Li-O2) battery has been emerging as one of the most promising high-energy storage systems to meet the requirements for electric vehicle applications due to its high theoretical energy density. In order to uncover the underlying electrochemistry and enable an informed battery design, it is crucial to gain a detailed understanding of the cell´s chemical components as well as its behavior during cycling.

  5. 5. Synthesis and transport properties of 2D transition metal carbides (MXenes)

    Author : Joseph Halim; Michel Barsoum; Lars Hultman; Per Eklund; Johanna Rosén; Martin Magnuson; Jun Lu; Christina Birkel; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Since the isolation and characterization of graphene, there has been a growing interest in 2D materials owing to their unique properties compared to their 3D counterparts. Recently, a family of 2D materials of early transition metal carbides and nitrides, labelled MXenes, has been discovered (Ti2CTz, Ti3C2Tz, Mo2TiC2Tz, Ti3CNTz, Ta4C3Tz, Ti4N3Tz among many others), where T stands for surface-terminating groups (O, OH, and F).
