Purdue researchers publish discoveries on high-temperature electronics materials in Science

Davidson School of Chemical Engineering Assistant Professor Brett Savoie is part of a team of researchers at Purdue University creating electronics that withstand extreme heat. The new plastic materials blends two organic materials together, and could reliably conduct electricity in up to 220 degrees Celsius (428 F), according to a paper published on December 6, 2018 in the journal Science.

Dr. Brett Savoie, research team publish findings on fluoride-based batteries in Science

The chemical element that makes up most of today's batteries, lithium, may soon be challenged by its polar opposite on the periodic table: fluoride. The two elements would be in competition for helping electronics last longer on a charge, such as electric cars that need to travel more miles than is possible with lithium-ion batteries on the market. Davidson School of Chemical Engineering Assistant Professor Dr. Brett Savoie and a team of researchers are closer to equipping fluoride-based batteries for battle with improvements that allow the technology to operate at room temperature. Up until this point, fluoride had been limited to building high-temperature batteries that are impractical for our electronic devices.
