  • The work on the development of non-precious air cathodes for rechargeable Zn-air battery has been accepted in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces
  • posted 2014-09-06 10:00:16 by Sangaraju Shamungam
  • We investigated the relationship between the physical properties of hybrid air cathodes to the electrochemical results at various battery charging-discharging cycles using various physico-chemical techniques. These results confirm that CoMn2O4 nanoparticles (CMO) supported on nitrogen-doped graphane oxide (N-rGO) is a promising air cathode material for safe, reliable, and long-lasting primary and rechargeable Zn-air battery that breath atomspheric air.
