Leading experts from around the world will convene in Las Vegas next week on December 4-7, 2012 for the 8th International Lithium Battery Power & 3rd International Battery Safety 2012 conferences. With over 45 presentations over 4 days these meetings will showcase the very latest scientific developments from around the world. David Keogh from Wildcat Discovery Technology is the latest to join the extensive list of presenters for this key industry event. The presentation abstract is featured below
"Improving Irreversibility Capacity of Lithium-Rich Cathode Materials via Solid State Delithiation," David Keogh, Wildcat Discovery Technology.
Cathodes based on lithium rich-NMC are a promising technology for next generation lithium-ion batteries, offering energy density improvements of >50% over current state of the art intercalation materials. At the same time, a number of technical challenges still limit the commercialization of these materials, including a large irreversible capacity of up to 20% typically observed on first cycle that results in significant gas evolution, as well as poor rate performance. To address this, Wildcat Discovery Technologies has recently developed a low-cost solid state activation process that improves the electrochemical performance of Li-rich NMC materials. In this process, activation is accomplished using a solid state reaction that selectively removes stoichiometric amounts of lithium and oxygen from the crystal structure. Using this process, Wildcat Discovery Technologies has demonstrated a reduction in the irreversible capacity to less than 5%, while also providing a significant improvement in the rate performance, without sacrificing discharge capacity or particle morphology.
This is the last chance to take advantage of the advanced registration discounts which expires Friday, November 30, 2012.
