Battery leverages both iron and oxygen to drive more lithium ions -- ScienceDaily

SCIENCE DAILY | on Wed, Jan 3, 7:46 PM

On paper, it doesn't seem like Christopher Wolverton's super lithium-rich battery should work. For one, the novel battery uses iron, an inexpensive metal that has notoriously failed in batteries. And in another difficult feat, the battery leverages oxygen to help drive the chemical reaction, which researchers previously believed would cause the battery to become unstable. But not only does the battery work, it does so incredibly well. Teaming up with researchers at Argonne National Laboratory...
