    • The identification and down selection of suitable cathode materials for use in next generation thermal batteries 

      Giagloglou, Kyriakos (University of St Andrews, 2017-12-07) - Thesis
      In this work new novel cathode materials such as transition-metal sulfides, chlorides or fluorides were investigated and studied for their use in lithium ion thermal batteries. All cathodes were synthesized by a solid state ...
    • In-situ studies of high temperature thermal batteries : a perspective 

      Payne, Julia L.; Giagloglou, Kyriakos; Carins, George Michael; Crouch, Christina; Percival, Julia D.; Smith, Ronald I.; Gover, Richard; Irvine, John T. S. (2018-11-20) - Journal article
      Here we present a perspective on in-situ studies of high temperature batteries. We focus on a primary battery technology- the thermal battery- which possesses a molten salt electrolyte. We discuss aspects of sample environment ...
    • In-situ thermal battery discharge using NiS2 as a cathode material 

      Payne, Julia L.; Percival, Julia D.; Giagloglou, Kyriakos; Crouch, Christina J.; Carins, George M.; Smith, Ronald I.; Comrie, Robert; Gover, Robert K. B.; Irvine, John T. S. (2017-08) - Journal article
      NiS2 is a cathode material found in primary batteries which operate at high temperature. Herein we report the in situ battery discharge study of a thermal battery cell which uses NiS2 as a cathode, using simultaneous ...
    • Synthesis and electrochemical study of CoNi2S4 as a novel cathode material in a primary Li thermal battery 

      Giagloglou, Kyriakos; Payne, Julia L.; Crouch, Christina; Gover, Richard; Connor, Paul A.; Irvine, John T. S. (2017-07-25) - Journal article
      In this work CoNi2S4 was investigated as a candidate cathode material for Li thermal batteries. The CoNi2S4 was synthesized by a solid state reaction at 550◦C in a sealed quartz tube. Neutron powder diffraction was utilized ...
    • Transition metal chlorides NiCl2, KNiCl3, Li6VCl8 and Li2MnCl4 as alternative cathode materials in primary Li thermal batteries 

      Giagloglou, Kyriakos; Payne, Julia L.; Crouch, Christina; Gover, Richard K. B.; Connor, Paul A.; Irvine, John T. S. (2018-11-14) - Journal article
      Transition metal chlorides KNiCl3, Li6VCl8 and Li2MnCl4 were synthesized by solid state reaction in sealed quartz tubes and investigated as candidate cathode materials along with NiCl2 in Li thermal batteries. The structure ...
    • Zirconium trisulfide as a promising cathode material for Li primary thermal batteries 

      Giagloglou, Kyriakos; Payne, Julia Louise; Crouch, Christina; Gover, Richard; Connor, Paul Alexander; Irvine, John Thomas Sirr (2016-11-25) - Journal article
      In this work ZrS3 has been synthesized by solid state reaction in a sealed quartz tube and investigated as a candidate cathode material in Li thermal batteries. The structure of ZrS3 before and after cell testing has been ...
