Changes in electrochemical performance in VO2(B) nanostructures

Congratulations to Tom, whose recent work on microwave synthesis of VO2 nanostructures and the evaluation of their electrochemical performance has been accepted for publication in a special issue on Energy Materials in Acta Cryst B. The use of microwave synthesis has driven down reaction times to three hours and yields thinner nanowires compared to those… Continue reading Changes in electrochemical performance in VO2(B) nanostructures
