Jodie Lutkenhaus: Redox-active Macromolecular Radicals Towards Sustainable Energy Storage

April 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
EB1 – Room 1011, 911 Partners Way
Raleigh, NC 27695-7907 United States

Speaker: Jodie Lutkenhaus Affiliation: Texas A&M Abstract:┬áSociopolitical pressure towards elemental cobalt drives the demand for new energy storage materials. Specifically, Li-ion battery cathodes contain lithium cobalt oxide (LCO) or lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxides (LNCM), for which some cobalt is obtained from politically sensitive geographical regions or by means of child labor. One solution towards this challenge is the translation of organic or metal-free electrodes to replace of cobalt-containing cathodes. Here, macromolecular radicals as redox-active electrodes for batteries are presented.…
