    8th Workshop "Lithium-Sulfur Batteries"

    Lithium-sulfur batteries are the most promising choice for future energy storage systems. Recent investigations on materials such as novel lithium (alloy) anode concepts, ion-selective separators, and nanostructured carbon / sulfur composite cathodes are crucial to significantly enhance the cell performance. In addition, innovative electrolytes – from highly to sparingly soluble liquid formulations up to all solid state concepts – open up new opportunities for cell design and applications.
