Hybridizing Anions towards Fast Diffusion Kinetics for Tri-Ion Batteries with Significantly Improved Rate Capability and Cycling Life - Journal of Materials Chemistry A (RSC Publishing)

April 09, 2019 0 Comments

Dual-ion batteries are promising candidates for next-generation energy storage devices for their merits of low cost, environmental friendliness and easy recovery. However, intercalation/deintercalation of large anions usually causes slow ion diffusion kinetics and large volume variation in graphite cathode leading to unsatisfactory rate capability and poor cycling stability. Herein, we report a new aluminum-graphite tri-ion (Li+/PF6-/BF4-) battery configuration (named as AGTIB) using an anion-hybridization strategy by combining PF6- with BF4- in the electrolyte. An optimized AGTIB is demonstrated to exhibit fast ion diffusion kinetics and substantially reduced volume changes in the graphite cathode during cycling. The AGTIB has a high rate performance with a 90.5 mAh g-1 capacity at 15C (92.5% retention compared to 2C) and good cycling stability for over 500 cycles at 5C with negligible capacity decay. The present finding suggests that the facile anion hybridization strategy shows promising application for exploring high-performance energy storage devices.

Cancer cells resist mechanical destruction in the circulation via RhoA-myosin II axis

April 09, 2019 0 Comments

During metastasis cancer cells are exposed to potentially destructive hemodynamic forces including fluid shear stress (FSS) while en route to distant sites. However, prior work indicates that cancer cells are more resistant to brief pulses of high-level fluid shear stress (FSS) in vitro relative to non-transformed epithelial cells. Herein we identify a mechanism of FSS resistance in cancer cells, and extend these findings to mouse models of circulating tumor cells (CTCs). We show that cancer cel...
