The electrochemical reaction of layered titanium disulfide with lithium giving the intercalation compound lithium titanium disulfide is the basis of a new battery system. This reaction occurs very rapidly and in a highly reversible manner at ambient temperatures as a result of structural retention. Titanium disulfide is one of a new generation of solid cathode materials. 

Lithium titanium disulfide cathodes

It is now almost 50 years since the first rechargeable lithium batteries, based on the reversible intercalation of lithium into layered structured titanium disulfide, were conceived. They were the

Solid State Electrodes for High Energy Batteries

The physical and structural properties relevant to the ability of transition metal oxides with framework structures to topochemically incorporate lithium are discussed, and Perovskite-related structures are particularly attractive hosts for lithium.

Design principles for electrolytes and interfaces for stable lithium-metal batteries

The development of rechargeable batteries that use metallic lithium anodes faces challenges such as dendrite formation. Here the authors review recent advances in preventing the proliferation of

Bulk and surface structural changes in high nickel cathodes subjected to fast charging conditions.

A layered oxide cathode, LiNi0.6Mn0.2O2, undergoes noticeable crystal expansion by losing significantly higher amounts of Li+ at the end of fast charging cycles, but is restored back to its pristine discharged state when intercalated with enough lithium ions during an electrochemical process.

Defective Carbon Nanocone as an Anode Material for Lithium-Ion Batteries

The performance of Li-ion batteries (LIBs) depends upon anode materials with high capacity. Motivated by the recent synthesis of a carbon nanocone (CNC), which includes a pentagon encircled by 30 h...



The Role of Ternary Phases in Cathode Reactions

The cell reactions between lithium and several transition metal oxides and sulfides have been found to produce ternary phases and not the formation of lithium oxide or sulfide as previously proposed.

Intercalation Complexes of Lewis Bases and Layered Sulfides: A Large Class of New Superconductors

The critical temperatures of the 50 new superconductors the authors report depend on the nature of the intercalate but are insensitive to a separation of the superconducting planes of up to 57 angstroms.

High-temperature batteries.

The state of the art for high-temperature batteries is presented and discussed, with emphasis given to the lithium alloy/metal sulfide and sodium/sulfur cells.

Thermodynamic Properties of the Potassium–Graphite Lamellar Compounds from Solid‐State emf Measurements

Thermodynamic properties of the potassium–graphite lamellar compounds have been determined in the temperature range 200°–350°C using a solid‐state emf technique. The electrochemical cells were of the
