Sulfonamides make robust cathode material for proton batteries

Credit: Wiley

Proton batteries are an innovative and environmentally friendly type of battery in which charge is carried by protons, which are positively charged hydrogen ions. A team of researchers has now developed organic sulfonamides as a robust and flexible material for cathodes in these batteries. As the team explain in the journal Angewandte Chemie International Edition, sulfonamide cathodes also achieve a higher output voltage than conventional cathodes.

In the constant search for alternatives to lithium-ion batteries, proton batteries are proven to have great potential. Rather than storing charge in the form of lithium ions, they transfer light, highly mobile …
