Chemists at the University of Toronto have developed a new battery that stores energy in a cathode derived from vitamins. The breakthrough could eventually lead to batteries that are much cheaper and more environmentally friendly than regular lithium-based batteries, but with similar performance. This development marks the first time a bio-derived polymer has been successfully applied to battery technology, an accomplishment that...
