Materials chemistry news, September 2017

Researchers have developed the first 4.0 volt lithium-ion battery able to use a water-salt solution as its electrolyte.

Light, oxygen and humidity can ‘heal’ perovskite solar cells

Defects in the molecular structure of perovskite solar cells can be ‘healed’ by exposing them to light, oxygen and just the right amount of humidity.

By altering the proportion of the ingredients in a lithium-based material, scientists have found a good candidate for a solid-state electrolyte.

Windows coated with thermochromic vanadium dioxide nanoparticles can let heat in during winter and keep it out in summer.

Scientists have developed new materials for splitting water to create hydrogen and splitting carbon dioxide to create carbon monoxide.

Scientists have developed a way to convert fallen leaves into a porous carbon material for use as a supercapacitor electrode.
