The Electrochemical Society hosted Prof. Jenny Pringle’s live webinar, “The Development of New Ionic Electrolytes for Energy Storage Devices” on April 21, 2021. Her answers to questions that followed the presentation are provided below.

NOTE: Registration is required to view the webinar.

Prof. Jenny Pringle works in the Institute for Frontier Materials at Deakin University, Australia, as a chief investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) and the ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre “StorEnergy.” She received her undergraduate degrees and PhD at The University of Edinburgh, Scotland, before moving to Monash University, Australia, in 2002. From 2008-2012, she held an ARC Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship investigating the use of ionic electrolytes for dye-sensitized solar cells. Pringle moved to Deakin University in 2013. There she leads research into the development of new ionic liquids and organic ionic plastic crystals for applications including thermal energy harvesting, gas separation membranes, and lithium and sodium batteries.

ECS and the ECS Pacific Northwest Section presented Prof. Xiulei “David” Ji’s webinar, “Aqueous Battery Chemistry: Considerations from a Reaction’s Perspective” on March 4, 2021. His answers to questions following the presentation are provided below. The webinar is now available for viewing.

Xiulei “David” Ji is an Associate Professor of Chemistry at Oregon State University, U.S. His research focuses on design principles of materials chemistry for electrochemical energy storage. Ji received a 2016 NSF CAREER Award and was a Web of Science Group Highly Cited Researcher in 2019 and 2020. He is currently an Associate Editor of Carbon Energy. He completed his PhD in Materials Chemistry at the University of Waterloo, Canada, in 2009. From 2010-2012, he was an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara, U.S.

“Aqueous Battery Chemistry: Considerations from a Reaction’s Perspective” summarizes five dimensions of considerations for the design of storage battery chemistries from a chemical reaction’s point of view. Different types of batteries including rocking-chair batteries, dual-ion batteries, and reverse dual-ion batteries are discussed. Ji also reviews recent conceptual advances on storage batteries that employ non-metal charge carriers such as proton, ammonium, halides, and superhalides.
