The organic battery from Harvard works by the bible principles


If to take two vessels, to fill them with electrolytes with a different charge and to put between them a crossing point membrane, then at interaction of liquids there will be electric current. The movement of electrons from one pole to another – this principle if to trust archaeological to researches, was known thousands years ago. A question only in material of which the battery is made and recently in Harvard have offered new effective type of organic accumulators.

Traditionally the best materials for electrolytes of flowing batteries are the compounds of bromine and vanadium dissolved in acid. Components are expensive, caustic, demanding corrosion protection for all design of batteries. Scientists struggle with search of their replacement long ago and in the 2014th in Harvard have begun the large-scale project on studying of quinones. This general name for organic molecules which are used for energy storage – researchers should study more than 10000 types in search of suitable.

At first the scientist was succeeded to replace bromine with ferrocyanide and to pass from acid to alkali, then they modified B2 vitamin, last year have refused caustic mixes in favor of neutral water solutions. And today present to the world new quinone, a man-made organic molecule with outstanding indicators of capacity and durability. Her called Mathusela, in honor of the bible aged man long-liver. the battery with molecules Mathusela in weak alkaline solution has shown to

the level of losses In tests in 0,001  % for one cycle of a charge category, no more 0,01  % for days of work. It means that degradation of the battery will make all 3  % a year and she will be able quite to compete with other types of accumulators. The prime cost of such battery is small too that allows to argue on its future mass application when the technology is transferred to commercial rails.

The Scientist-engineers from the Stanford university it was succeeded to find the solution of all key problems of the existing accumulators on the basis of liquid metals. According to them, we are on the threshold of opening – the new battery will be cheaper, safer and more effective present, at
All history of studying of potential life on Mars came down to step-by-step refusal of probability of such phenomenon. At first the planet was recognized as "dead" in a broad sense, but suitable for dwelling of mosses and lichens. After the missions of Mariner and Viking have refused to the Red

Scientists of institute of Viss at Harvard University have developed a coin the tiny milliDelta robot surgeon, using the equipment of origami. In expanded form his size corresponds to an odnotsentovy coin (its diameter of 19 mm). But even at so modest sizes it is equipped with the flexible

The First flight the RoboBee robot insect has made in 2012. Then time of his stay in air was limited several seconds. For last four years, thanks to the creators – the scientist from Harvard, he has considerably succeeded in flight art. So at the last Harvard RoboBee exhibition I have shown the
the International team of researchers of Harvard University has created the soft robot imitating under the influence of light the movement of a sea slope in water. Researches in the field of creation of artificial heart of one of participants of team of Keith Parker became a push for
The World power is in great need in the revolutionary store of energy which will replace outdate in all respects, but still uncontested for mass use of lities - ion batteries. So-called "proton accumulators", a combination of a fuel cell and the chemical battery became one more candidate for this
