Active oxidation catalyst for Li–air batteries

By Esther Levy / August 24, 2010

Lithium batteries that utilize oxygen as the cathode material are very promising owing to their extremely high theoretical capacity of almost 12,000 Wh kg-1. In these lithium-air batteries, oxygen is adsorbed directly from the atmosphere when required rather than being stored in the battery itself. In practice, a combination of carbon powder, oxygen, oxygen reduction…
