Room temperature rechargeable sulphur batteries

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Projects

Abstract


  • The aim of this project is to develop low cost and environmental friendly sulphur and sulphur containing compound electrode materials with high specific capacity, high power density, and high rate capability for large rechargeable batteries. A new battery system, consisting of a sulphur or sulphur containing compound cathode and lithium or sodium metal anode, will be developed for use in electric vehicles and hybrid electrical vehicles. The mechanisms of electrode materials degradation will be investigated using conventional organic solvent electrolytes, ionic liquid based electrolytes and solid state polymer electrolytes.
