High-Energy and High-Power Electrochemical Energy Storage Based on Dual Intercalation/Radical Electrodes
Here, we combine the advantages of both storage principles, to form battery electrodes capable of delivering the capacity of the high-energy intercalation material and intermittently the high rate capability of the radical material. First, we must understand the processes that occur in the cell on discharge and charge to fully take advantage of the potential of the concept.
We will discuss recent results on the detailed elucidation of the charge transfer mechanism in the so formed dual radical/intercalation electrodes, materials aspects, thermodynamic and kinetic considerations. We combine synthetic, spectroscopic and advanced electroanalytical methods to gain insight into the governing processes.
