Japan research team reports on new organic electrodes for high-capacity batteries

Japan research team reports on new organic electrodes for high-capacity batteries 29 October 2011 A research team in Japan reports on the demonstration of high capacity, organic tailored batteries using organic molecules with degenerate molecular orbitals (MOs) as electrode active materials in a paper in the journal Nature Materials. Research on organic electrodes has been underway for more than 25 years, as the technology in theory offers the possibility of building greener and more sustainable Li-ion batteries than those built from non-renewable, inorganic materials. However, such attempts have been characterized by low capacities or other limitations. In 2008, researchers at Université de Picardie Jules Verne in France reported on a new renewable organic electrode material—the oxocarbon salt Li2 C6 O6 —for lithium-ion batteries. That material showed a reversible capacit...
