Canadian chemists use vitamins in new sustainable lithium battery
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Chemists at the University of Toronto have developed a new battery that stores energy in a cathode derived from vitamins. http://phys.org/news/2016-08-chemists-vitamin-driven-battery.html 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...
