Characterization of metallic hydride-based nanomaterials for application in Li-ion batteries by electrochemical techniques, microscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Synthesis and characterization of nanostructured/composite materials consituted by simple and complex metallic hydrides to be used in Li-ion batteries. The preparation routes will be carried out by top-down or bottom-up approach: mechanochemical methods and advance chemical synthesis routes will be adopted, respectively. The innovative materials will be characterized by electron microscopy (SEM and TEM), X-ray diffraction and electrochemical techniques such as galvanometry and voltammetry. These experimental will be carried out in electrochemical semi-cells using lithium metal as counter and reference electrodes and non-aqueous electrolytes. Most-promising materials will be also studied by solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance in order to investigate nucleus mobility (ionic diffusion), to elucidate their chemical first/second-neighbors shells, and to describe the solid state transformations that occur upon lithium electrochemical incorporation

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
