Alloys as Anode Materials in Magnesium Ion Batteries
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis is a feasibility study of the possible application of magnesium alloys forfuture magnesium-ion batteries. It investigates dierent alloys and characterizesthem with respect to internal resistance, overpotentials and the reversibility of theelectrochemical reaction. SEM and EDS studies of used electrodes have also beencarried out. It has been showed that alloys, easier to handle and at a fraction of thecost, can be used with equal or better performance than pure Mg. The seeminglysuperior alloy, AZ61 exhibits a coloumbic eciency close to 100%, at higher chargerates than pure Mg.
