Main Research Activities

Cathode materials are key components in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries; indeed the particle size and shape of particles play an important role in the electrochemical performance. In view of that, a strictly and detailed control of the synthesis parameters results in the change of the nucleation processes, leading to the change of properties such as porosity, degree of agglomeration and particle size. My work focuses on the control of the mentioned inside the scaling-up process of cathode materials for Na batteries.
