Speciation Analysis of Manganese Dissolution in
Li-Ion Batteries

Manganese-based LIBs are environmentally friendly, have a good safety record, and can be produced at a lower cost than other metal-based LIBs; however, they have a shorter lifetime. One reported cause of lifetime loss is the dissolution of manganese from the cathode into the electrolyte during cycling. This presentation will discuss the analysis of cycled anode material and the separation of different degradation products.

Extreme isotope effects: Changing bonds

David Bradley

thumbnail image: Extreme isotope effects Changing bonds

The effects of different isotopes present in a molecule can affect the making and breaking of chemical bonds during the course of a chemical reaction. However, work published in Angewandte Chemie uses theoretical calculations and other techniques to demonstrate that, in extreme cases, isotopic substitution can even cause a fundamental change in the type of chemical bond.

LA-ICP-MS analysis of rhyolitic glass shards was carried out using small ablation craters with calibration by a silicon internal standard to allow for interferences from calcium-rich phenocrysts and avoid issues related to the ablation of the mounting resin.

No seasoning: Fluctuating flux flummoxed

The decay rate of certain radioactive nuclides does not fluctuate with the terrestrial seasons because of changes in the flux of solar neutrinos passing through our planet, according to new research that debunks the hypothesis.

Boron artifacts in mass spectrometry originating from glass bottles

Steve Down

Nov 24, 2014

Unexpected borate complexes detected during the electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry of hydroxy acids were traced to trimethyl borate from borosilicate glass bottles that leached into the methanol being stored.
