Convert rather than intercalate lithium for battery applications

By Esther Levy / March 1, 2011

Credit: MaterialsViews Almost two decades have passed since the emergence of lithium-ion batteries on the market. Despite steady improvements in performance, current technology is struggling to meet the demand for ever better energy density, power, safety, and environmental impact. A core problem lies in the intercalation materials used as electrodes in state-of-the-art lithium batteries. These…

GM unveils new lithium-ion battery

By / January 8, 2010

Detroit’s WWMT.com reported that GM has manufactured an advanced lithium-ion battery for its electric vehicle, the Chevy Volt. The Volt is designed to drive up to 40 miles on electricity without using gasoline or producing emissions. When Volt’s lithium-ion battery is depleted of energy, a flex-fuel engine-generator operates to extend total driving range to about…
