Changes in electrochemical performance in VO2(B) nanostructures

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

Fast electrode synthesis from single source precursors

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
