Sugar in electrodes sweetens performance of next-gen batteries

Monash researchers have shown that the addition of glucose to lithium sulphur batteries’ positive electrodes made them more stable, providing a way forward for more energy-dense batteries. Lithium sulphur batteries can in theory hold two to five times the energy of current lithium batteries, according to a statement from Monash Energy Institute, which published their…
