Superfast Charging High-Capacity Potassium Batteries Based on Organic Polymers

Skoltech researchers in collaboration with scientists from the Institute for Problems of Chemical Physics of RAS and the Ural Federal University have shown that high-capacity high-power batteries can be made from organic materials without using lithium or other rare elements. In addition, they demonstrated the impressive stability of cathode materials and record high energy density in fast charge/discharge potassium-based batteries. The results of their studies were published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A, Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, and Chemical Communications.

Lithium-ion batteries are indispensable in our daily life: they are widely used for energy storage, in particular, in portable electronics. The demand for batteries is surging due to the rapid advancement of electric vehicles that are attracting ever-increasing investment. For example, Volvo intends to increase the share of electric vehicles to 50% of its overall sales by 2025, and Daimler announced its plans to give up internal combustion engines altogether, shifting the emphasis towards electric vehicles.
