Inspired by 16th century Chinese medicine, Griffith scientists have turned to nature for solutions to improve the performance of batteries. Professor Eddie Shanqing Zhang and his team have identified three natural sources which will not only reduce pollution in the manufacturing of lithium ion batteries and lithium-sulfur batteries, but improve overall performance and cyclability. This […]
