Participation in the E-MRS Conference by the University of Limerick

University of Limerick presented research results on high capacity anodes and water soluble binders

The 2013 E-MRS Spring Meeting (27-31 May 2013) was attended by members from industry, government, academia and research laboratories to debate recent technological developments of functional materials. The conference provided an opportunity to discover some of the latest research developments in materials science for energy applications with six parallel symposia dedicated to “Materials for Energy”. Of particular interest was the “Nanomaterials for Energy Storage and Conversion” symposium in which some of the latest technological breakthroughs in the area of nanomaterials for Li-ion batteries were showcased.

During this conference the University of Limerick presented two posters on research developed within GREENLION:

  • “Silicon and Germanium Nanowires Synthesised Using Type B Catalyst Materials as High Capacity Anodes for Li-ion Batteries” by Tadhg Kennedy, Hugh Geaney, Emma Mullane, Michal  Osiak, Colm O'Dwyer, Kevin M Ryan
  • “Water Soluble Binder Formulations for Current and Next Generation Lithium Ion Battery Anodes” by Michael Brandon, Tadhg Kennedy, Mathias Ituka, Kevin M. Ryan.
