Produce Lithium-Ion Battery Coin Cells

Description: Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are composed of negative electrode (anode), electrolyte, and positive electrode (cathode). The energy storage in LIBs depends on the reversible electrochemical reactions/charge storage in the electrodes associated with electron and ion transport. The lithium ions diffuse between the electrodes through the electrolyte, while the electrons flow through the external circuit. For…

Electrocatalysts for oxygen evolution reaction and hydrogen evolution reaction

Description: The process of hydrogen fuel cells, solid oxide fuel cells, metal-air batteries and electrolyzers impose much less treat to the environment, but commercialization of such energy devices is limited because of the pricy noble metal catalysts. The rate-limiting reaction is the oxygen evolution reaction catalyzed by IrO2/RuO2. The catalysts are either unstable or display…
