The extensive concerns of limited resources, safety and the environmental issues of current energy storage techniques has fired new research to sustainable battery revolution to satisfy the burgeoning global market. Aqueous zinc-based batteries may be able to address these issues but suffer from fast capacity fade and poor ion diffusion kinetics; due to unstable structures and non-optimised cathode materials and electrolytes. The recent progress of cathode materials and electrolyte optimisation for zinc-based batteries from my group will be discussed in the talk.


Dr. Guanjie He is an Associate Professor in Chemistry, University of Lincoln and an Honorary Lecturer in the Department of Chemistry and Department of Chemical Engineering, University College London (UCL). He received the PhD degree in Chemistry from UCL. Dr. He's research focused on materials for electrochemical energy storage and conversion applications, especially electrode materials in aqueous electrolyte systems. Dr. He has published over 90 papers in peer-reviewed journals with total citation of over 2700, and an h-index of 29.
