Keep away from water: Skoltech scientists show a promising solid electrolyte is “hydrophobic”

Skoltech researchers Mariam A. Pogosova, Irina V. Krasnikova, Alexey O. Sanin, Svetlana A. Lipovskikh, and Keith J. Stevenson and their colleagues Andrei A. Eliseev and  Artem V. Sergeev have shown that LATP, a solid electrolytes considered for use in next-generation energy storage, is highly sensitive to water, which has direct implications for potential battery performance and lifetime. The paper was published in the journal Chemistry of Materials. (also – linked on the first page; languages available: ENG, DE, ESP)
