Metal-ion batteries have changed our everyday lives. The research on the electrode materials for metal-ion batteries is the key to improving the performance of the battery. Magnetic resonance, including nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), has been continuously improved during the past three decades and has gradually become one of the important technologies to study the structure-performance relationship of electrode materials.
This webinar will help to grasp the important value of NMR and EPR techniques for battery research, which will promote the further development of advanced magnetic resonance technology. Prof. Hu will present unique examples of in-situ EPR and EPR imaging methods to study bulk and dendritic lithium deposits, dissolution of Cr-ions in Na-batteries, detection, and monitoring oxygen species, such as molecular and singlet oxygen in new cathode materials. A novel approach of using EPR employed together with NMR to analyze and understand electrochemical reaction mechanisms and structural electrode changes is the key to further improving battery performance.
