  • New chemistries found for liquid batteries

    New chemistries found for liquid batteries

    Liquid metal batteries, invented by MIT professor Donald Sadoway and his students a decade ago, are a promising candidate for making renewable energy more practical. The batteries can store large amounts of energy and are in the process of being commercialized by Cambridge-based startup company, Ambri.Now, Sadoway and his team have found yet another set of chemical constituents that could make the technology even more practical and affordable.
