Lithium-Sulfur Batteries: An Advanced Lithium-Sulfur Battery (Adv. Funct. Mater. 8/2013)
On page 1076, Yang-Kook Sun, Jusef Hassoun, Bruno Scrosati, and co-workers report and characterize a hard carbon spherules-sulfur electrode that is prepared by impregnation of crystalline sulfur into the carbon spheres through melting and thermal treatment. This material demonstrates very high capacity and rate capability, and is therefore proposed as a new generation cathode to drive electric vehicles over a long range.
