Porous Carbon Based Catalysts for Lithium Air Batteries

Funding: 2014: $128,950
2015: $128,090
2016: $128,050

Project Member(s): Liu, H.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC DECRA Scheme)

Start year: 2014

Summary: Greenhouse gas emissions from the consumption of fossil fuels are causing disastrous climate change and global warming. The research and development of electric vehicles to replace conventional vehicles has emerged as a solution to this imminent problem. The progress of battery technology plays a key role in the development of electric vehicles. This proposed project addresses the issues by the development of innovative porous carbon based materials for next generation batteries with high capability, high power densit and excellent retention. Furthermore, the project will also benefit Australia in the research forefront of nanotechnology, materials engineering, energy storage and applied chemistry.
