Title: Cathodes and electrolytes for rechargeable magnesium batteries and methods of manufacture

Abstract

The invention relates to Chevrel-phase materials and methods of preparing these materials utilizing a precursor approach. The Chevrel-phase materials are useful in assembling electrodes, e.g., cathodes, for use in electrochemical cells, such as rechargeable batteries. The Chevrel-phase materials have a general formula of Mo 6Z 8 and the precursors have a general formula of M xMo 6Z 8. The cathode containing the Chevrel-phase material in accordance with the invention can be combined with a magnesium-containing anode and an electrolyte.
