Utilizing vitamin C to develop lithium-sulfur batteries #tech #news

Korean researchers have developed a new type of lithium-sulfur battery that uses vitamin C with a 20% improvement in performance over current batteries. A group of researchers led by Professor Jaeyoung Lee from the School of Environmental Science and Engineering at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology said that they succeeded in improving the energy capacity of lithium-sulfur batteries with vitamin C treated dual-layered graphene-sulfur. The research was conducted by Jin-Won Kim, who is a Ph.D. candidate, and the project was supported by the National Research Council of Science & Technology. The research has been published in the ChemSusChem online journal on April 29, 2015, with the title 'Improvement of energy capacity via Vitamin C-treated dual-layered graphene-sulfur cathodes in lithium sulfur battery.' Lithium-sulfur batteries are widely considered to be a viab...
