  • Applications of ordered mesoporous metal oxides : energy storage, adsorption, and catalysis 

    Ren, Yu (University of St Andrews, 2010-11-30) - Thesis
    The experimental data and results demonstrated here illustrate the preparation and application of mesoporous metal oxides in energy storage, adsorption, and catalysis. First, a new method of controlling the pore size and ...
  • Nanomaterials for energy storage 

    Jiao, Feng (University of St Andrews, 2008-01-01) - Thesis
    The results presented in this thesis demonstrate the first synthesis of several nanostructured transition metal oxides and lithium containing transition metal oxides. Their uses in lithium-ion batteries and/or as magnetic ...
  • The rechargeable lithium/air battery and the application of mesoporous Fe₂O₃ in conventional lithium battery 

    Bao, Jianli (University of St Andrews, 2009) - Thesis
    By replacing the intercalation electrode with a porous electrode and allowing lithium to react directly with O₂ from the air, the new rechargeable Li/O₂ battery system was studied. The porous cathode is comprised of carbon, ...
  • Stability and recharging of aprotic Li-O₂ batteries 

    Chen, Yuhui (University of St Andrews, 2014-11) - Thesis
    Non-aqueous rechargeable lithium-air (O₂) batteries are receiving intense interest because of their high theoretical specific energy, which are several times greater than that of lithium-ion batteries. To achieve it, the ...
