NTU Singapore team develops ultra-fast charging Li-ion battery with new TiO2 gel anode material

Green Car Congress

Researchers from Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) led by Professor Xiaodong Chen have developed a new TiO 2 gel material for Li-ion battery anodes. Titanium dioxide (TiO 2 ) nanomaterials are of interest as Li-ion anode materials due to their advantages in terms of cost, safety, and rate capability.

In addition, a scenario is being tested in which some of the daily peak electrical demand might be buffered by the cars’ lithium-ion batteries in the future. In phases of battery regeneration (during braking) or coasting (with anticipatory deceleration), only the E-motor is active; drag torque losses are reduced by disengaging the petrol engine via a separation clutch.
