New ‘Yolk-And-Shell’ Nanoparticle Could Boost Capacity and Power of Lithium-Ion Batteries

New ‘Yolk-And-Shell’ Nanoparticle Could Boost Capacity and Power of Lithium-Ion Batteries

One big problem faced by electrodes in rechargeable batteries, as they go through repeated cycles of charging and discharging, is that they must expand and shrink during each cycle — sometimes doubling in volume, and then shrinking back. This can lead to repeated shedding and reformation of its “skin” layer that consumes lithium irreversibly, degrading the battery’s performance over time. [More]

Self-Organisation of Particles Leads to Hexagonal-Patterned 2D Nanohills

Self-Organisation of Particles Leads to Hexagonal-Patterned 2D Nanohills

Nanoscale worlds sometimes resemble macroscale roller-coaster style hills, placed at the tip of a series of hexagons. Surprisingly, these nanohills stem from the self-organisation of particles - the very particles that have been eroded and subsequently redeposited following the bombardment of semi-conductors with ion beams.

Carbon Dioxide Recycled into Polycarbonate Block Copolymers that can Aggregate into Nanoparticles

Carbon Dioxide Recycled into Polycarbonate Block Copolymers that can Aggregate into Nanoparticles

A future where power plants feed their carbon dioxide directly into an adjacent production facility instead of spewing it up a chimney and into the atmosphere is definitely possible, because CO2 isn’t just an undesirable greenhouse gas; it is also a good source of carbon for processes like polymer production.
