Charge transfer mechanism in 3D pore-solid nano-architectures for electrochemical systems

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • The project will conduct fundamental studies on the charge transfer mechanism in nano-electrochemical energy storage and conversion systems. It also aims to develop better electrodes and electrolytes for lithium ion batteries and PEM fuel cells. Novel 3D nanoarchitectures with significantly improved ion transport and better electrochemical performance will lead to possible new breakthroughs in energy technologies. We expect to make discoveries that will be useful not only in lithium ion batteries and PEM fuel cells, but also in the area of supercapacitors and electrochemical sensors. This will make an important contribution to portable devices, electric vehicles, and other devices containing associated batteries and fuel cells.
