Monash researchers stabilize Li-S battery with saccharide-based binder

Researchers from the Monash Energy Institute, with colleagues from CSIRO, have used a saccharide-based binder system to develop a durable sulfur cathode with minimal polysulfide escape in a lithium-sulfur battery. The saccharide-based binder system regulates polysulfides due to its reducing properties. The binder also promotes the formation of viscoelastic filaments during casting which endows the sulfur cathode with a desirable web-like microstructure.
