According to foreign media reports, the United States department of energy's Lawrence Berkeley national laboratory, designed a reactive polymer electrolyte adhesives, adjustable lithium silicon key ion transport process, also can show its functioning principle from molecular level.
Compared with conventional lithium-sulphur batteries, the capacity of the new polymer binder has doubled, even in the hundreds of high-current densities.
Berkeley lab, the researchers designed a polymer molecular laboratory, sulfur, very close, so close to the electrode ensures that this is mainly thanks to its selective sulfur molecules to adhesive, so as to offset its migration.
The experiments were carried out by the Berkeley lab's advanced light source laboratory, which was also confirmed by the laboratory of electrochemistry at the argonne national laboratory.Comprehensive understanding of the synthesis, theory and properties of the new polymer makes the binder one of the important components of the lithium - silicon battery.
Researchers at the joint center for energy storage research, together with MIT and uc Berkeley scientists, have formed a research and development team funded by JCESR.
