That research projects were organized by the U.S. Department of Energy (United States Department of Energy (DoE), Argonne National Laboratory, USA, for the development of new batteries for electric drive vehicles.

Main objective of that projects is to develop and manufacture a number of experimental and new lines of experimental equipment for the development of technologies and materials for manufacturing of batteries for electric drive vehicles.

Final Technical Meeting  on International R&D Project P483 “New Materials for Electric Drive Vehicles”, August 7th, 2013

Meeting of Ukrainian participants of the project P483 "New materials for electric drive vehicles" and U.S. partners was held  in the MRC office and work premises on August 7th 2013. It was attended by P483 project technical monitor Dave Carter and Andrew Castiglioni (Argonne National Laboratory, USA), American partner Igor Barsukov (American Energy Technologies Company, USA), P483 project manager S.Saenko (KIPT), O. Gogotsi (Materials Research Centre), M.Gubinskyi (NMetAU), and STCU representatives- STCU’s Deputy Executive Director (USA) Vic Korsun, I.Tomashevskaya (STCU).

The participants have summed up the project P483 on manufacturing experimental equipment for pilot  technological line. Also packaging and transportation and subsequent mounting in the United States have been discussed. Complex of experimental equipment designed, manufactured and assembled by MARC due to the project, was demonstrated to American party. Shown equipment is completely ready for shipment to the customer.

Technical Meeting and Discussion on International R&D Project P482 "Recycling Spent Batteries for Electric Drive Vehicles", August 8th, 2013

MRC was visited by US project manger Upendra S. Rohatgi (Brookhaven National Laboratory), Igor Barsukov (American Energy Technologies Company), Ukrainian P482 project manager M.Gubinskyi (NMetAU), S. Fedorov (NMetAU),  O. Gogotsi (Materials Research Centre), V.Lutsenko (DO Yuzhnoe), Ya.Tyrygin (DO Yuzhnoe), and STCU representatives - STCU’s Deputy Executive Director from USA Vic Korsun and N.Dudko (STCU).

The workshop took place in the production of Material Research Centre, which discussed work issues on manufacturing equipment due to the project P482. At the work premises of MRC was presented developed and  already manufactured, completely and partly assembled units and items of equipment for technological line.

Meeting with Expeditor on Packing and Transportation of Equipment Manufactured by MRC due to the Project P483 “New Materials for Electric Drive Vehicles”, August 28th, 2013

P 483 project collaborator Joseph Doninger (Dontech Global Inc., USA) and  STCU’s Deputy Executive Director (USA) Vic Korsun visited MRC to discuss work issues on packing and shipment of completed equipment with expeditor and MRC Director O.Gogotsi.

ICEnSM 2017. 2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials, Shenzhen, China, November 18-21, 2017

The First International Conference on Energy Storage Materials Professor Yury Gogotsi from Drexel University, USA, has won the 2017 Energy Storage Materials Award, which is awarded by the journal Energy Storage Materials. The Award will be presented to Professor Gogotsi at the ICEnSM 2017 (2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials), which will be held in Shenzhen, China, on Nov. 18-21, 2017.

 
Congratulations to professor Yury Gogotsi for being named 2017 Highly Cited Researcher!

altHis research ranks among the top 1% most cited works in his field and during its year of publication, earning the mark of exceptional impact. This year is the first time Yury Gogotsi made this list in two categories - Materials Science and Chemistry.

 
Nanodiamonds Can Prevent Lithium Battery Fires

Nanodiamonds in the electrolyte solution of lithium ion batteries prevent the formation of dendrites that cause runaway heat-up resulting in fires. Source: Drexel University and Tsinghua UniversityScientists researching battery-related fires and explosions, such as the incidents that got Samsung Galaxy Note 7s banned from airline flights last year, took the first step toward preventing the fires when they traced the source of the runaway heat buildup to small dendrites that form between the anode and cathode. Now a materials specialist at Drexel University (Philadelphia) has proposed a low-cost, easy way to prevent the dendrites from forming.

Partial breaking of the Coulombic ordering of ionic liquids confined in carbon nanopores

An international team of researchers, including Drexel's Yury Gogotsi, PhD, observed that ions will forgo their typical alternating charge ordering when they are forced to jam into a small, sub-nanometer-sized, space — a behavior modification not unlike people relinquishing personal space in order to pack into a crowded subway car. The discovery could lead to safer energy storage devices and better water filtration membranes.In their most recent paper in Nature Materials researcher from Drexel University led by prof. Yury Gogotsi showed that Coulombic ordering reduces when the pores can accommodate only a single layer of ions. The non-Coulombic ordering is further enhanced in the presence of an applied electric potential. 

 
Researcers from Drexel University have developed a recipe that can turn electrolyte solution into a safeguard against the chemical process that leads to battery-related disasters

Recipe for Safer Batteries — Just Add DiamondsResearchers described a process by which nanodiamonds — tiny diamond particles 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a hair — curtail the electrochemical deposition, called plating, that can lead to hazardous short-circuiting of lithium ion batteries.
