our "MagSiMaI" project funded by BMBF

Together with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), ISIT Fraunhofer etc., we receive a research project grant from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for the project proposal on "Optimierung von Magnesium-Schwefel Batterien durch innovative Materialentwicklung"

The goal in the project "MagSiMaL" is: to generate a highly cycle stable and rate capable Magnesium-Sulfur-Battery, which involves cathode materials with a high content of covalently bound sulfur; to synthesize new conductive salts and electrolytes, which are stable in a broad electrochemical window and are (beside desired SEI formation) chemically and electrochemically inert. Furthermore, a strong emphasis lies on the clarification of aging mechanisms inside Mg-S-cells and their single components (anode, cathode, electrolyte) by using  post-mortem analysis techniques. Finally, the influence of different morphologies as well as surface activation of Mg-anodes on their electrochemical response is to be investigated in this project."
