    • A common tattoo chemical for energy storage: henna plant-derived naphthoquinone dimer as a green and sustainable cathode material for Li-ion batteries 

      Miroshnikov, Mikhail; Kato, Keiko; Babu, Ganguli; Divya, Kizhmuri P.; Arava, Leela Mohana Reddy; (2018)
      The burgeoning energy demands of an increasingly eco-conscious population have spurred the need for sustainable energy storage devices, and have called into question the viability of the popular lithium ion battery. A series of natural polyaromatic compounds have previously displayed the capability to bind lithium via polar oxygen-containing functional ...
    • Energy storage devices including at least one electrode comprising a metal diboride, and related methods 

      Zhou, Zhou; Kato, Keiko; Babu, Ganguli; Khabashesku, Valery N.; Ajayan, Pulickel M. (2020-09-15)
      An energy storage device including a first electrode comprising lithium, a second electrode comprising a metal diboride, an electrolyte disposed between the first electrode and the second electrode and providing a conductive pathway for lithium ions to move to and from the first electrode and the second electrode, and a separator within the electrolyte ...
    • High-K dielectric sulfur-selenium alloys 

      Susarla, Sandhya; Tsafack, Thierry; Owuor, Peter Samora; Puthirath, Anand B.; Hachtel, Jordan A.; (2019)
      Upcoming advancements in flexible technology require mechanically compliant dielectric materials. Current dielectrics have either high dielectric constant, K (e.g., metal oxides) or good flexibility (e.g., polymers). Here, we achieve a golden mean of these properties and obtain a lightweight, viscoelastic, high-K dielectric material by combining two ...
