Video of the Week: Making better batteries with metal oxide & graphene composites at PNNL

This video explains one route researchers at Pacific Northwest National Lab and Princeton are taking to create better materials for batteries: materials that assemble on their own into durable nanocomposites. Details are also provided about surfactants used in conjunction with tin oxide and functionalized graphene.

The video features interviews with PNNL researcher Jun Liu and Princeton’s Ilhan Aksay who directs the school’s Ceramic Materials Lab. (Aksay is a past winner of ACerS’ Richard M. Fulrath Award.)

They hope this approach leads to an easy synthesis route at a low cost. I believe their graphene composite anode has gone into production at Targray Technology International in conjunction with Vorbeck Materials.
