Breakthrough for battery production with sulphur cathodes

Materials Science

Electromobility and portable electronic devices such as laptops and cell phones are unthinkable without the use of lithium-ion batteries. The problem: highly toxic materials such as cobalt are often used for the cathodes of these batteries, which endanger the environment and the health of people in the countries where they are mined. In addition, the reserves of these metals are very limited.
