Real-time powder diffraction studies of energy materials under non-equilibrium conditions

Abstract


  • Energy materials form the central part of energy devices. An essential part of

    their function is the ability to reversibly host charge or energy carriers, and

    analysis of their phase composition and structure in real time under nonequilibrium

    conditions is mandatory for a full understanding of their atomicscale

    functional mechanism. Real-time powder diffraction is increasingly being

    applied for this purpose, forming a critical step in the strategic chemical

    engineering of materials with improved behaviour. This topical review gives

    examples of real-time analysis using powder diffraction of rechargeable battery

    electrodes and porous sorbent materials used for the separation and storage of

    energy-relevant gases to demonstrate advances in the insights which can be

    gained into their atomic-scale function.
