265. The progress of the electrical researches which I have had the honour to present to the Royal Society, brought me to a point at which it was essential for the further prosecution of my inquiries that no doubt should remain of the identity or distinction of electricities excited by different means. It is perfectly true that Cavendish, Wollaston, Colladon and others, have in turn removed some of the greatest objections to the acknowledgement of the identity of common, animal and voltaic… Expand
Electric fluid to electric current: The problematic attempts of abstraction to concretization
In ancient times, electricity was viewed as a spirit or soul residing in an inanimate substance. A fluid image was introduced in an attempt to visualize its movement. It was also an effort toExpand

Robert Bentley Todd was the first to confirm the electrical basis of brain activity in the 1840s and brilliantly foresaw each nerve vesicle and its related fibres as a distinct apparatus for the development and transmission of nervous polarity. Expand
Application of Capacitive Deionisation in water desalination: A review
Abstract This manuscript spans over 180 years of ideas, discoveries, inventions, breakthroughs and research in Capacitive Deionisation (CDI) and Membrane CDI (MCDI) desalination. Starting with theExpand
Membrane Desalination: Where Are We, and What Can We Learn from Fundamentals?
Reverse osmosis is a preferred membrane technology owing to process and pre- and posttreatment improvements that have significantly reduced energy requirements and cost, but future improvements in RO are limited by inherent technical mass transfer limitations. Expand
Polymorphism in Li4Zn(PO4)2 and Stabilization of its Structural Disorder to Improve Ionic Conductivity
Realization of the vulnerability of current rechargeable battery systems drives the research of solid electrolytes. In the search for a new Li ion conductor, we explored the rich crystal chemistry ofExpand
Multi-scale modeling of diffusion and electrochemical reactions in porous micro-electrodes
Abstract A multi-scale model of diffusion/reaction at play in a porous electrode is developed and solutions to the physico-electro-chemical coupled problem are provided. This represents a key step toExpand
Lithium battery chemistries enabled by solid-state electrolytes
Solid-state electrolytes are attracting increasing interest for electrochemical energy storage technologies. In this Review, we provide a background overview and discuss the state of the art,Expand
Combining two redox active rare earth elements for oxygen storage - electrical properties and defect chemistry of ceria-praseodymia single crystals.
Higher values of oxygen deficiency and electrical conductivity than in pure ceria have been observed in the high oxygen partial pressure region, while no significant structural changes occur due to the similar ionic radii of both cations. Expand
Designing composite solid-state electrolytes for high performance lithium ion or lithium metal batteries
The comparison of different types of CSSEs relative to their parental materials is deeply discussed in the context of ionic conductivity and interfacial design, and the proposed ion transfer pathways and models of lithium dendrite growth in composites are outlined to inspire future development ofCSSEs.

Metal oxide nanomaterials and their application in solarphotoelectrolysis of water
Solar generated hydrogen as an energy source is green, sustainable, with a high energy density. One day the majority of current fossil fuel based technology could be replaced with hydrogenExpand
