Title: Metalized, three-dimensional structured oxygen cathode materials for lithium/air batteries and method for making and using the same

Abstract

This disclosure relates generally to cathode materials for electrochemical energy cells, more particularly to metal/air electrochemical energy cell cathode materials containing silver vanadium oxide and methods of making and using the same. The metal/air electrochemical energy cell can be a lithium/air electrochemical energy cell. Moreover the silver vanadium oxide can be a catalyst for one or more of oxidation and reduction processes of the electrochemical energy cell.

  • The invention provides a method for generating Li.sub.2O.sub.2 or composites of it, the method uses mixing lithium ions with oxygen ions in the presence of a catalyst. The catalyst comprises a plurality of metal clusters, their alloys and mixtures, each cluster consisting of between 3 and 18 metal atoms. The invention also describes a lithium-air battery which uses a lithium metal anode, and a cathode opposing the anode. The cathode supports metal clusters, each cluster consisting of size selected clusters, taken from a range of between approximately 3 and approximately 18 metal atoms, and an electrolyte positioned between the anodemore » and the cathode.« less
  • This invention relates to low-cost, electroactive-polymer incorporated fine-fiber composite membranes for use as overcharge and/or overdischarge protection separators in non-aqueous electrochemical cells and the methods for making such membranes.
  • A three dimensional tracking solar energy concentrator, consisting of a stretched aluminized polymeric membrane supported by a hoop, was presented. The system is sturdy enough to withstand expected windage forces and precipitation. It can provide the high temperature output needed by central station power plants for power production in the multi-megawatt range.
  • Graphical abstract: Display Omitted Highlights: ► We designed and synthesized a pomegranate-structured FePO{sub 4}/C composite. ► We used a combination of electrospinning and solid-state reaction for preparation. ► We showed how the performance of pomegranate-structured FePO{sub 4} is highly enhanced. -- Abstract: A pomegranate-structured FePO{sub 4}/C composite was synthesized via a combination of electrospinning and high temperature reaction using micron-level FePO{sub 4} and polyacrylonitrile (PAN). Systematic studies on synthesis, modification, and characterization of FePO{sub 4}/C composites were conducted. The FePO{sub 4}/C composites delivered a specific discharge capacity of 109 mAh g{sup −1} at 0.2 C and 39 mAh g{sup −1}more » at 10 C, which were comparable with the reported nanometer-level FePO{sub 4}. We demonstrated that the three-dimensional net-like structure covered by porous carbon layers could highly enhance the electrochemical performance of FePO{sub 4}.« less
