Nicolas Jäckel on TV discussing about FAKE! science

Nicolas Jäckel is not only selected Fellow to participate at this year’s Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (impressive considering the tough competition internationally), but is also partaking in a TV show with the title “emotions instead of facts: do we mistrust science?”. The podium discussion includes also German Federal Minister for Education and Research Prof. Johanna Wanka, Prof. Helga Nowotny (former President of the European Research Council), and Andreas Sentker (Managing Editor at Die Zeit).

Tune in ARD Alpha on June 28th, at 8:15 PM (Link to the show).

New paper published in Journal of Materials Chemistry A on the promising ZnI2 redox energy storage system

New paper published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A on the promising features of the ZnI2 redox energy storage system. Using activated carbon cloth electrode and a Zn electrode, we achieve a high energy storage performance of 226 Wh/kg and a higher power of 20 kW/kg. The unique strength of iodide adsorption allows stable and efficient operation even without ion exchange membranes.
