Presented by the ECS Pacific Northwest Section
The design of storage batteries entails a holistic view. This webinar summarizes five dimensions of considerations for the design of storage battery chemistries from a chemical reaction’s point of view. Electrode materials and ion charge carriers are the reactants; electrolytes are the reaction medium; battery configurations describe the operation fashion of the reactors; the electrode-ion chemical bonding reflects the nature of the chemical reaction, which affects the thermodynamic and kinetic properties of batteries. The permutations of these five dimensions result in ten unique approaches. The chemical-reaction nature of batteries can be a vantage that unifies rather than compartmentalizes a new paradigm of storage battery research.
Benefits of attending the webinar
- Basic considerations in design storage battery chemistries.
- Different types of batteries, including rocking-chair batteries, dual-ion batteries, and reverse dual-ion batteries.
- Recent conceptual advances on storage batteries that employ non-metal charge carriers such as proton, ammonium, halides, and superhalides.
