Fluoride Makes Better Batteries
KIT researchers have developed a new concept for rechargeable batteries. Based on a fluoride shuttle—the transfer of fluoride anions between the electrodes—it promises to enhance the storage capacity reached by lithium-ion batteries by several factors. Operational safety is also increased, as it can be done without lithium. The fluoride-ion battery is presented for the first time in the Journal of Materials Chemistry by Maximilian Fichtner and Munnangi Anji Reddy.
