Fast Charge New Discovery - Layered Crystal Tungsten Oxide Hydrate
While extending battery life is a major breakthrough in battery research and technology, how do you store or transfer more battery energy? North Carolina State University researchers want to address this problem. A material they created, called layer crystalline tungsten oxid hydrate, uses water to regulate the charge transfer rates.
Chemistry of Materials recently published this study. Crystallizedtungsten oxide, according to prior research, is a type of battery material which has large storage capacity but not very fast energy storage speeds. They compared two high-density materials for battery storage: crystalline, layered and crystalline. A layered crystalline and crystalline tungstenoxide hydrate is made of a crystal tungstenoxide layer, separated by an acid layer. Researchers found that normaltungsten oxide stored more energy than the hydrates after charging them for 10 minutes. But, when charged for 12 second, hydrates retained more energy then crystalline tungstenoxid. The researchers found that both hydrates and crystalline tungsten oxide store more energy than hydrated. They also reduce the amount of waste heat.
NCSU plans to create a layered, crystalline tungsten dioxide hydrate battery in order to make electric vehicles more efficient. Unfortunately, the technology at this point isn't perfect. Normal tungsten oxide actually has more power than the oxide after just 10 minutes. However, this technology does have its place. Automakers now have more options for nonlinear acceleration. It is possible to achieve zero emissions.
A new type of tungsten dioxide quantum dot electrode material was also developed by the Zhao Zhigang Group of Suzhou Institute of Nanotechnology in collaboration with the Qi Fengxia Group of University of Suzhou. It has an extremely fast electrochemical response. Results were recently published in Advanced Materials International Journal.
The potential of emerging energy storage and conversion technologies, such as supercapacitors, fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries have been a major focus of industry and academia. It is the ultimate goal of people to develop efficient electron- and ion transport systems in electrode materials.
This material is much more compact than bulk materials and has an ideal ion diffusion distance. The electrode material. However, most of the electrochemistry results using quantum dots are not satisfactory due to their poor electrochemical activity and the high interfacial resistance among particles.
Yan Fengxia's and Zhao Zhigang’s research groups have been conducting research on the topic. They made significant breakthroughs in research regarding preparation of tungsten-oxide quantum dots, as well as their electrochemical uses. A tungsten-based, metal-organic complex is used as a precursor, with a single, unreacted fatty acid as a reactant, and as solvent. This gives rise to a uniform, monodispersed organic solvent nanocrystal that exhibits strong quantum effect. Then, the team solves the tungsten dioxide quantum. It is not easy to find the point and it must be solved using the lattice templates (silica gel, molecular sieve).
Through simple ligand trade, the researchers also showed that quantum dots have superior electrochemical properties in charge and discharge as well as electrochromic testing. Quantum dot materials will continue to be used in high-speed response electrochemical device fields.
