Graphene sponge helps lithium sulphur batteries reach new potential
Even though battery technology has certainly improved over the last century. Much research and development are being done on battery technology to improve performance while ensuring that batteries are lightweight, compact, and affordable.
lithium- sulfur batteries (LI-S) hold the potential to revolutionize the rechargeable battery market. Li-S offers a theoretical energy density more than five times that of lithium-ion batteries.
Now, Scientists at the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden have reported a novel, simple, and environmentally benign synthesis route for this type of battery, using a catholyte with the help of a graphene sponge.
