Seminar of Prof. José Luis Tirado (University of Cordoba): “Recent advances and challenges in Li- and post-Li- ion batteries”, January 23th at 1:00 pm

Abstract: Univalent Na- and multivalent (Ca, Mg, Al)- ion batteries have recently emerged as potential candidates to replace Li-ion batteries in some applications. Their elemental natural abundance, homogeneous geographic distribution and high volumetric capacities in some cases, could be useful for this purpose.
