Lithium-air catalyst breakthrough could make car and phone batteries last five times longer

Professor KANG Kisuk's research team has discovered new catalyst materials that could make it possible to create lithium-air (Li-Air) batteries that can store five times more power than lithium-ion (Li-On) batteries do today. Lithium-air batteries work by taking oxygen from the air and using it in chemical reactions that produce electricity, rather than storing an oxidiser internally like lithium-ion batteries.
