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.

While even the best analytical techniques cannot rectify problems generated by sloppy sample preparation, this less "sexy" step between the point at which analytes are transferred from the sample matrix to a form suitable for analysis is often overlooked. Read a free chapter from "Sample Preparation Techniques in Analytical Chemistry " here.

In this tutorial Dr Gary M Hieftje from Indiana University takes us right back to the grass roots of atomic spectroscopy making it ideal reading for either the graduate or anyone wishing learn more about this important branch of analytical chemistry.

The infrared spectrum is rich in information, and this article by John Coates, taken from the highly acclaimed Encyclopedia of Analytical Chemistry is intended to help the reader to extract the maximum information.
