Congratulations to Marco, whose recent work on the fast, reliable microwave synthesis of aluminium-doped garnets and the study of their Li-ion diffusion dynamics has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A: Fast microwave-assisted synthesis of Li-stuffed garnets and insights into Li diffusion from muon spin spectroscopy
Chapter focused on Metal oxide nanoparticles written by Serena has appeared in the Royal Society of Chemistry Specialist Periodical Report on Nanoscience: Nanostructures through Chemistry, Volume 3.
Congratulations to Tom, whose recent work on microwave synthesis of VO2 nanostructures and the evaluation of their electrochemical performance has been accepted for publication in a special issue on Energy Materials in Acta Cryst B. The use of microwave synthesis has driven down reaction times to three hours and yields thinner nanowires compared to those… Continue reading Changes in electrochemical performance in VO2(B) nanostructures
Congratulations to Josefa, whose recent work on single source precursors for the synthesis of electrode materials has been accepted for publication in Chemical Communications. Microwave or ultrasonic treatment of metal alkoxides presents a fast, low cost route to both anode and cathode nanomaterials for Li-ion battery applications. Here, we demonstrate the formation of LiMPO4 (M… Continue reading Fast electrode synthesis from single source precursors
