Researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar, and Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) have developed a two-dimensional (2D) anode material for lithium batteries by using nanosheets derived from titanium diboride. They found the new anode material leads to a discharge capacity of 174 mA h/g within 10 minutes at a current rate of 1 A/g.
US-based Nanotech Energy’s graphene battery uses proprietary electrodes with a thermally stable separator, and non-flammable electrolyte that is said to be inexpensive to manufacture. The technology is said to be superior in terms of safety and competitive in terms of cell performance.
