Polyethylene Oxide (PEO)-Based Electrolyte for Lithium Sulfur Polymer Battery
by Lorenzo Carbone, Jusef Hassoun
The poster reports a sulphur carbon composite materials as cathode, prepared by planetary ball milling, and PEO polymer membrane with lithium triflate salt as electrolyte. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were carried out on the PEO membrane to characterize the thermal properties of the membrane , lithium interface stability and Stripping/deposition analyses confirmed the stable behavior of the membranes. The cathode was characterized by thermogravimetric analyses (TGA) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) was used to observe theactive materials morphology. Charge-discharge tests in lithium metal half-cells, were carried out at different current rate in a conventional liquid ether based electrolyte and successively in PEO polymer membrane
Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, and the third largest in the United Kingdom (after London and Birmingham). Greater Glasgow had a population of 1,199,629 at the 2001 census. At the 2011 census, it had a population density of 8,790/sq mi (3,390/km2), the highest of any Scottish city. It is situated on the River Clyde in the country's West Central Lowlands. Inhabitants of the city are referred to as Glaswegians.
ECS Conference on Electrochemical Energy Conversion & Storage with SOFC-XIV
This is the first of a series of planned biennial conferences in Europe by The Electrochemical Society on electrochemical energy conversion/storage materials, concepts, and systems, with the intent to bring together scientists and engineers to discuss both fundamental advances and engineering innovations.This major international conference will be held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow and will serve as a major forum for the discussion of interdisciplinary research from around the world through a variety of formats, such as invited and keynote oral presentations, poster sessions, short courses, guest and award winning lecturers, a dynamic technical exhibit, and much more.
