MSE Researchers discovered the secret compound dictating the operation of Li-air batteries. In collaboration with A/P Stefan Adams and overseas researchers, A/P Wang Qing and his team identified a new compound LiOOH, which unequivocally elucidates the battery chemistry of water-contaminated aprotic Li-air batteries. This work has recently been published in Nature Communications.
A/P Stefan Adams talked battery safety at Channel NewsAsia. A/P Adams appeared in a live interview at Primetime Asia of Channel NewsAsia on 23 Jan., and shared his expert view on Samsung's investigation results about their recent Note 7 mobile phone battery failures. The video clip of the interview can be accessed at http://video.toggle.sg/en/tv-show/news/jan-2017-primetime-asia/mon-23-jan-2017/473450
MSE Researchers developed a photoelectrochemical tandem cell employing natural photosynthetic proteins. Dr. Tan Swee Ching and his team have demonstrated an enhanced photocurrent output in the tandem cell incorporating genetically modified proteins and transparent conductive polymer in collaboration with A/P Ouyang Jianyong and UK researchers. The work has recently been published in Advanced Energy Materials.
Our heartiest congratulation to Prof. Ding Jun who has been awarded NRF CRP Grant. Prof. Ding received funding support to develop a brand new laser sintering technique for the fabrication of high-performance ceramic materials and components by breaking up the bottleneck of the conventional processing and currently available additive manufacture techniques for ceramics.
“Congratulations to the following PhD students who received MSE Best Publication Awards 2016: Yun Guang Zhu, “Proton enhanced dynamic battery chemistry for aprotic lithium-oxygen batteries”, published in Nature Communications; Xiao Wen, “Dual-Functional N Dopants in Edges and Basal Plane of MoS2 Nanosheets Toward Efficient and Durable Hydrogen Evolution”, published in Advanced Energy Materials; and Sai Kishore Ravi, “Enhanced Output from Biohybrid Photoelectrochemical Transparent Tandem Cells Integrating Photosynthetic Proteins Genetically Modified for Expanded Solar Energy Harvesting”, published in Advanced Energy Materials”
