CORROSION RESEARCH CENTER AREAS OF RESEARCH
High energy and power rechargeable batteries are the focus of intensive research and development efforts worldwide due to their promising uses in portable electronic devices and electroic vehicles. Among the possible chemistries, the systems based on the reversible ion intercalation in transition metal oxides occupy a prominent role.
Our research is mostly focused on the synthesis and the chemical-physical and electrochemical characterization of new intercalation materials prepared through sol-gel processes.
The research goals include
