Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials Colloquium Jean-Marie Tarascon


02 February 2012 FWN-Building 5111.0080, Nijenborgh 4, 9747 AG, Groningen
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Jean-Marie Tarascon

Laboratoire de Réactivite et Chimie des Solides (LRCS), Université de Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens Cedex, France

Title: Materials and synthesis approaches for developing sustainable and "greener"  Li-based batteries
Date: Thu Feb 2, 2012
Start: 16.00 (Doors open and coffee available at 15.30)
Location: FWN-Building 5111.0080


Although today's Li-ion technology has conquered the portable electronic markets, and is still improving, it falls short of meeting the demands dictated by both electric transportation and grid applications.  There is room for optimism as long as we pursue paradigm shifts while keeping in mind the concept of materials sustainability.  Some of these concepts relying on i) new ways to prepare known or new inorganic phosphates, fluorophosphates or fluorosulfate electrode materials via eco-efficient processes enlisting ionothermal or bio-inspired approaches, ii) exploiting  organic electrodes, and iii) exploring new insertion chemistries, will be discussed.
