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
Not 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.

Battery all stars: 1D nanostructured NiS is demonstrated to be a promising active material for all-solid-state lithium batteries. Lithium metal, rather than the Li–In alloy, is employed as the anode of batteries to improve the energy density. The obtained all-solid-state lithium batteries exhibit excellent rate capability and cycling stability, with discharge specific capacities of 338 and 243 mAh g−1 after 100 cycles at current densities of 250 and 500 mA g−1, respectively.
