Chemical Engineering researchers part of collaboration bringing new concepts for potassium-ion batteries
Davidson School of Chemical Engineering researchers are part of a collaborative effort to develop rechargeable batteries based on potassium, a potential alternative to lithium that is less expensive and far more plentiful. Graduate student Ryan A. Adams led much of the research. His research is co-directed by Dr. Vilas Pol, associate professor of Chemical Engineering and Dr. Arvind Varma, R. Games Slayter Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering.
