VIP: Non-Invasive Probing of Nanoparticle Electrostatics

Dr. Kristina Tschulik, Dr. Wei Cheng, Dr. Christopher Batchelor-McAuley, Stuart Murphy, Dr. Dario Omanović and Prof. Dr. Richard G. Compton

Non-Invasive Probing of Nanoparticle ElectrostaticsNot what you might think: A new and non-invasive technique to probe the electrostatic interaction between surface-charged nanoparticles and a charged metal/solution interface shows that electrostatic effects are insignificant in all but very dilute electrolytes.

    Titan power: A facile electrochemical anodization for TiOx nanotubular arrays of oxygen defects is carried out in a nitrogen atmosphere to fabricate a binder-free anode. The TiOx nanotubular arrays with reduced impedance and oxygen defects demonstrate record-setting capacities (395, 325, and 235 mAh g−1 at 0.2, 1, and 10 C, respectively) for TiO2-based anode materials.

  5. Fabrication of New 2.4 V Lithium-Ion Cell with Carbon-Coated LiTi2(PO4)3 as the Cathode
