Carbon nanotubes to make Li-ion batteries 10 times more powerful

By / June 24, 2010

According to an MIT press release, researchers claim to have created electrodes from carbon nanotubes that can make lithium-ion batteries ten times more powerful than conventional models. Such batteries, they say, could one day be used for power-hungry applications, such as hybrid vehicles and renewable energy sources. Yang Shao-Horn and colleagues have created electrodes made…

Nanotube thermocells to harvest wasted thermal energy

By / March 17, 2010

According to a press release from University of Texas at Dallas, carbon nanotube electrodes could be used for generating thermoelectrical energy from heat discarded by chemical plants, automobiles and solar cell farms. The study (PDF) was published in the American Chemical Society’s journal Nano Letters. Harvesting wasted energy could potentially created clean energy and lower…
