    The synthesis of a range of rhodium(III) and iridium(III) half sandwich complexes with aryl dithiolato ligands of varying geometry and flexibility is reported. These include dinuclear [Cp*M(S‒R‒S)]2 complexes 3b and 4b, M ...
  • Minimally invasive insertion of reference electrodes into commercial lithium-ion pouch cells 

    McTurk, E.; Birkl, C. R.; Roberts, M. R.; Howey, D. A.; Bruce, FRS, Peter (2015-11-04) - Journal article
    Two procedures to introduce a lithium metal reference electrode into commercially manufactured lithium-ion pouch cells (Kokam SLPB 533459H4) are described and compared. By introducing a stable reference potential, the ...
  • A parametric open circuit voltage model for lithium ion batteries 

    Birkl, C. R.; McTurk, E.; Roberts, M. R.; Bruce, P. G.; Howey, D. A. (2015-09-01) - Journal article
    We present an open circuit voltage (OCV) model for lithium ion (Li-ion) cells, which can be parameterized by measurements of the OCV of positive and negative electrode half-cells and a full cell. No prior knowledge of ...
