High-Value: Energy Uses - Basis for Use

DUO2 battery test cell at U. Kentucky
DUO2 battery test cell at U. Kentucky
  • Basis for use
    • Capable of sustaining high temperatures
    • Electronic properties hold promise for more efficient systems based on literature and limited experiments
      • Battery
        • Higher voltage, more electrons than Pb, Li
        • DUO2 less expensive than traditional battery materials such as Li
      • Fuel Cell: DUO2 has same crystal structure as conventional membranes
      • Hydrogen production: DUO2 electrodes are not degraded during photo-electrolysis
