Next-generation batteries could go organic, cobalt-free for long-lasting power

In the switch to “greener” energy sources, the demand for rechargeable lithium-ion batteries is surging. However, their cathodes typically contain cobalt—a metal whose extraction has high environmental and societal costs. Now, researchers in ACS Central Science report evaluating an earth-abundant, carbon-based cathode material that could replace cobalt and other scarce and toxic metals without sacrificing lithium-ion battery performance.In the switch to “greener” energy sources, the demand for rechargeable lithium-ion batteries is surging.
