KIT/IIT team demonstrates suitability of high-entropy oxides (HEO) as conversion materials for reversible energy storage

By mmillikin Novel materials can considerably improve storage capacity and cycling stability of rechargeable batteries. Among these materials are high-entropy oxides (HEO), the stability of which results from a disordered distribution of the elements. With HEO, electrochemical properties can be tailored, as was found by scientists at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).

An open-access paper on their work is published in the journal Nature Communications.

HEOs incorporate multiple metal cations into single-phase crystal structures; interactions among the various metal cations lead to interesting novel and unexpected properties.

Recently, a new class of oxide systems, also known as high entropy oxides (HEO), was formulated and
