Russians and Chinese team up for next gen Li batteries

23 May '17
A collaborative team of chemists from Russia’s Moscow Lomonosov State University (MSU) and China’s Soochow University has come up with new material to be used as the basis for high-efficiency lithium power cell development, portal Indicator.ru reported. The results of the research have been published in English in Materials Research Bulletin.

“We aim to develop molybdenum sulfide and oxide based material that could be used “as is,” without any further processing, in energy storage systems,” said Sergei Savilov, a senior research fellow at MSU’s physical chemistry department and one of the authors of the article published.

In their research, the scientists used modern electronic microscopy and surface analysis techniques to describe sample characteristics.

Mr. Savilov believes the new material will enable the development of inexpensive, yet highly efficient Li-based power cells for mobile technology and household appliances.
