New Clues to Oxygen’s Role in Higher-Capacity Batteries

In lithium-ion batteries, electrodes made of transition-metal oxides demonstrate storage capacities far beyond what’s expected. At the Advanced Light Source, measurement of the chemical activity of the oxygen in the material showed that the activity depends on the type of transition metal used, providing new insight into the development of advanced high-capacity lithium-ion cathodes.
