Energy news, December 2019

A study into the synthesis of cathode materials for high-energy lithium-ion batteries has unexpectedly revealed why these materials degrade during use.

Defects in the crystalline lattice of lithium-ion battery cathodes can speed up the rate of charge and discharge by forcing lithium ions to take detours.

A new model has revealed how tiny tweaks to the molecular shapes in non-fullerene acceptors can improve the performance of organic solar cells.

drug-loaded silica nanoparticles target the blood vessels that supply tumors with oxygen and nutrients to ‘starve’ cancer cells

Hybrid silicon-organic for next-generation quantum computers, energy conversion

Using 3D printing technology, scientists have developed an efficient elastocaloric cooling material made from a nickel-titanium alloy,

CNTs produced from CO2 using low-energy chemical processes drastically reduce emissions associated with construction materials

Continuing research in the field of nanomaterials for energy storage will be critical for the widespread adoption of sustainable energy sources.
