M Helen et al.
Scientific reports, 5, 12146-12146 (2015-07-16)
Lithium-sulphur batteries have generated tremendous research interest due to their high theoretical energy density and potential cost-effectiveness. The commercial realization of Li-S batteries is still hampered by reduced cycle life associated with the formation of electrolyte soluble higher-order polysulphide (Li2Sx
Giuseppe Antonio Elia et al.
Scientific reports, 5, 12307-12307 (2015-08-05)
Herein we report the characteristics of a lithium-oxygen battery using a solid polymer membrane as the electrolyte separator. The polymer electrolyte, fully characterized in terms of electrochemical properties, shows suitable conductivity at room temperature allowing the reversible cycling of the
Marshall A Schroeder et al.
ACS applied materials & interfaces, 7(21), 11402-11411 (2015-05-07)
One of the greatest obstacles for the realization of the nonaqueous Li-O2 battery is finding a solvent that is chemically and electrochemically stable under cell operating conditions. Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is an attractive candidate for rechargeable Li-O2 battery studies; however
Jennifer Nicholas et al.
Journal of medical Internet research, 17(8), e198-e198 (2015-08-19)
With continued increases in smartphone ownership, researchers and clinicians are investigating the use of this technology to enhance the management of chronic illnesses such as bipolar disorder (BD). Smartphones can be used to deliver interventions and psychoeducation, supplement treatment, and
Emanuel Peled et al.
Nano letters, 15(6), 3907-3916 (2015-05-15)
Here, we report on the scalable synthesis and characterization of novel architecture three-dimensional (3D) high-capacity amorphous silicon nanowires (SiNWs)-based anodes with focus on studying their electrochemical degradation mechanisms. We achieved an unprecedented combination of remarkable performance characteristics, high loadings of

Biopreservation and biobanking, 13(4), 287-295 (2015-08-19)
It has been known for decades that many cytokines, such as IL-2, IL-6, and IL-12, bind to heparin. Even though some enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) use antibody-recognizing epitopes not affected by this binding, ELISA manufacturers often warn that heparinized plasma

LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 nanorods wrapped with graphene nanosheets have been prepared and investigated as high energy and high power cathode material for lithium-ion batteries. The structural characterization by X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy indicates the LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 nanorods prepared

The development of highly efficient catalysts is critical for the practical application of lithium-oxygen (Li-O2) batteries. Nanosheet-assembled ZnCo2O4 (ZCO) microspheres and thin films grown in situ on single-walled carbon nanotube (ZCO/SWCNT) composites as high-performance air electrode materials for Li-O2 batteries are
Benjamin J Bergner et al.
Journal of the American Chemical Society, 136(42), 15054-15064 (2014-09-26)
Nonaqueous Li-O2 batteries are an intensively studied future energy storage technology because of their high theoretical energy density. However, a number of barriers prevent a practical application, and one of the major challenges is the reduction of the high charge
Birte Jache et al.
Angewandte Chemie (International ed. in English), 53(38), 10169-10173 (2014-07-25)
Although being the standard anode material in lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), graphite so far is considered to fail application in sodium-ion batteries (NIBs) because the Na-C system lacks suitable binary intercalation compounds. Here we show that this limitation can be circumvented
Jong Guk Kim et al.
ChemSusChem, 8(10), 1752-1760 (2015-04-25)
A hybrid composite system of MnCo2 O4 nanowires (MCO NWs) anchored on reduced graphene oxide (RGO) nanosheets was prepared as the bifunctional catalyst of a Li-O2 battery cathode. The catalysts can be obtained from the hybridization of one-dimensional MCO NWs

Advanced materials (Deerfield Beach, Fla.), 27(35), 5203-5209 (2015-08-11)
The kinetics of Li2 S electrodeposition onto carbon in lithium-sulfur batteries are characterized. Electrodeposition is found to be dominated by a 2D nucleation and growth process with rate constants that depend strongly on the electrolyte solvent. Nucleation is found to
Mohamed Aklalouch et al.
ChemSusChem, 8(20), 3465-3471 (2015-09-19)
By comparing carbon electrodes with varying porosity in Li-O2 cells, we show that the effect of electrolyte stirring at a given current density can result in a change from 2D to 3D growth of discharged deposits. The change of morphology
