Toyota, PNNL, Lithium-Sulfur Batteries.
Toyota triplet at Le Mans: The Japanese will send a third hybrid to compete in the WEC racing series this year. Reportedly, Porsche plans to conquer the 24 hours with two 919, while Audi left the series.
Fastest synthetic catalyst to make H2? Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) have now developed a synthetic catalyst producing 45 million hydrogen molecules per second by controlling the structural dynamics of the molecular catalyst. Instead of platinum, this catalyst has nickel at its core. The principle was inspired by bacteria.
Shuttle interrupted: European researchers say they found an approach to convert Li2S into sulfur without the polysulfide shuttle, which usually leads to self-discharge and problem with efficiency and cycle life in lithium sulfur batteries. Their idea is direct and involves carbon enwrapment.
