A novel rechargeable battery with a magnesium anode, a titanium dioxide cathode, and a magnesium borohydride/tetraglyme electrolyte

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The strong push for electric vehicles and large-scale power storage systems has generated intense interest in rechargeable magnesium batteries due to the innate merits associated with the magnesium metal anode in terms of volumetric capacity, abundance, and operational safety. Herein, we report a novel pathway toward the development of an advanced battery containing a magnesium anode, a titanium dioxide cathode, and a magnesium borohydride/tetraglyme electrolyte, which delivers high specific capacity, as well as exceptional cycle life and rate capability. This work demonstrates the importance of compatibility of the electrochemical activities of the cathode materials and electrolytes in rechargeable Mg batteries.
