New paper published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A on the promising features of the ZnI2 redox energy storage system. Using activated carbon cloth electrode and a Zn electrode, we achieve a high energy storage performance of 226 Wh/kg and a higher power of 20 kW/kg. The unique strength of iodide adsorption allows stable and efficient operation even without ion exchange membranes.
New paper published in ChemSusChem on using mechanochemical solvent-free synthesis of nitrogen doped nanoporous carbon for supercapacitor electrodes. This work stems from our collaboration with the Junior Investigator Group of Lars Borchardt (TU Dresden) and is being featured on the back cover of the current issue of ChemSusChem.
Today, Volker Presser has his 5-year anniversary as Group Leader at INM.
Collaborator Bastian Etzold from the TU Darmstadt is presenting joint work with us at the meeting for reaction engineering (Reaktionstechnik 2017) in Würzburg. His talk is entitled: “Reaction engineering as basis for the synthesis of carbonaceous core-shell materials for energy storage applications”.
New paper published in Journal of Power Sources. Our team has investigated novolac derived nanoporous carbon as conductive support for lithium sulfur batteries. This work was in cooperation with the Group of Oskar Paris (Montanuniversität Leoben, Austria) and Lars Borchardt (Technische Universität Dresden, Germany).
Welcome our new postdoctoral research fellow Dr. Eunho Lim. Having graduated Pohang University of Science and Technology, he will be working on metal oxide / carbon nanomaterials.
