Process For Electrodepositing Manganeese Oxide With Improved Rate Capabilities For Electrical Energy Storage

Tech ID: 28783 / UC Case 2017-590-0

Brief Description

The invention is a novel method for enhancing the energy, power and performance of lithium ion batteries. It applies a new process for electrodepositing Manganese Oxide in a way that improves the electrical properties as well as the rate at which the battery can operate. Using this method, the energy storage capabilities is boosted significantly; making it faster, more reliable and enabling various applications to become more dependent on electric/battery solutions.

Full Description

This invention proposes a new process for enhancing the energy storage capabilities of an important Li+ insertion metal oxide: MnO2. This process enables MnO2 to function at a higher rate, and for thicker coatings, enhancing the energy and power of batteries and capacitors. This technology, along with a related technology (please see Related Case 2016-760) allows for nanowire-based batteries and capacitors with extremely long cycle lifetimes (over 200,000 recharging cycles) without loss of capacitance.
