Hot Topics in Battery Science and Technology from ACS Articles

Posted by MSE Supplies on

The current era is frequently and justifiably referred to as the silicon age or as the age of information. Recent years have seen the added twist that users in this era expect the information to be readily available at all times and at all places. The information age has morphed into the age of portable information. In enabling this age of portable information, one could argue that lithium-ion batteries have played a central, starring role.

MSE Supplies is a leading supplier of high quality anode, cathode and electrolyte materials for Lithium Ion Batteries research and manufacturing.

The community at large clearly recognizes the need to push new advances in battery science and technology by building on current successes. This list is a compilation of articles that address new directions in relevant areas and have appeared from 2013 to 2015 in three different ACS journals: ACS Applied Materials and InterfacesChemistry of Materials, and The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters. The selection of articles reflects a combination of what is seen as impactful, opening up new directions, or providing deep and important insights.
