New material could boost batteries’ power, help power plants

You’re going to have to think very small to understand something that has the potential to be very big.

A team of researchers, including Kyle Brinkman of Clemson University, developed a material that acts as a superhighway for ions. The material could make batteries more powerful, change how gaseous fuel is turned into liquid fuel and help power plants burn coal and natural gas more efficiently.

The team reported its findings Friday in the journal Nature Communications.
