Asphalt helps lithium batteries charge faster

October 2nd, 2017

Asphalt helps lithium batteries charge faster A touch of asphalt may be the secret to high-capacity lithium metal batteries that charge 10 to 20 times faster than commercial lithium-ion batteries, according to Rice University scientists. The lab of chemist James Tour developed anodes comprising porous carbon made from asphalt that showed exceptional stability after more […]

Laser-induced graphene is made from wood

September 8th, 2017

Laser-induced graphene is made from wood Rice chemists have produced a catalyst based on laser-induced graphene that splits water into hydrogen on one side and oxygen on the other side. They said the inexpensive material may be a practical component in generating the hydrogen for use in future fuel cells. James Tour, the T.T. and […]
