A new design for vanadium redox flow batteries could help fundamental research and accelerate commercialization of this energy storage technology.
Effect of the Dielectric Constant and Ion Mobility in Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells
A cationic iridium complex emitter in a light-emitting electrochemical cell is used to study the competing effects on the dielectric constant by varying the size of the negative ions with it.
Exfoliation of Graphene in Volatile Solvents Using Aromatic Surfactants
A multidisciplinary group led by Andrea Liscio at CNR, Bolgna, Italy, has reported that adding aromatic surfactants promotes the exfoliation of few-layers graphene nanosheets in low-boiling organic solvents.
