Old tires find new purpose by helping build better anode for Li-ion batteries

By Jessica McMathis / September 5, 2014

The recycled rubber we so readily discard—some 290 million tires each year—could someday provide electricity to our electric vehicles or store solar or wind energy.

Two new candidates for the lithium-ion battery anode job

By Eileen De Guire / September 28, 2011

Mesoporous titania-bronze microspheres show promise as lithium-ion battery anodes. Credit: M. Paranthaman; ORNL Conceptually, lithium-ion batteries are simple devices comprising the anode, cathode and electrolyte. The anode’s job is to grab and stash lithium ions as fast as it can and to give them up speedily when current is drawn off through the cathode. The…
