CHE 341 - Topics in Inorganic Chemistry: Batteries from a Chemical Perspective


Instructor
Anstey

Energy in the form of chemical potential is a powerful and efficient method of energy storage. However, batteries, the most common implementation of this principle, can be complex and still in need of optimization. A historical survey of battery technologies will be undertaken with the express purpose of identifying the aspects that chemistry has and can continue to improve. New and nascent technologies will be identified and explored, identifying how chemistry can make them viable. Course work will involve literature studies on battery technology, analysis of battery components, presentations from experts on related topics, and group work and presentations on cutting-edge research.

Prerequisites & Notes
Chemistry 220 or 240.
