Brimstone and Nanotech May Boost Batteries

Brimstone and Nanotech May Boost Batteries

Batteries that pair lithium with sulfur may now be a major step closer to propelling electric vehicles three times farther than the lithium-ion batteries used to do so today, researchers say. For electric vehicles to have a 500-km range, their batteries would need to store nearly double the energy they do now . One possible solution are lithium-sulfur batteries, which store more electrons kilo for kilo than lithium-ion batteries. Moreover, sulfur is extremely abundant, relatively light, and cheap, making it potentially very attractive for use in novel batteries. Despite its many advantages, lithium-sulfur batteries are plagued with problems that have hampered practical realization. One challenge lithium-sulfur batteries face is how the electrode that contains the sulfur often gets depleted after only a few cycles of discharging and recharging. This is because the sulfur di...
