e-SPRESSO WEBINAR: Supercharge your battery material characterization


The density of electrode materials directly correlates to their volumetric energy density and is used to track the crystallinity of electrode materials. Surface area and pore size influence the interface between charge transfer solids and electrolytes. Separator efficiency requires the proper pore size too. Whether it is controlling the quality of the raw materials or monitoring the progress of a processing step, particle characterization helps developers and manufacturers of batteries to increase the efficiency of their efforts. 

Key insights:

• How gas adsorption is used to know the surface area and pore size of electrode materials

• What gas pycnometry offers to battery material developers and manufacturers

• How liquid displacement techniques (porosimetry and porometry) define pore volume and pore size distribution

• Practical recommendations for obtaining the most meaningful results from these methods

Dr. Martin Thomas, Anton Paar QuantaTec’s lead scientist, has more than 37 years of experience in powder and porous materials characterization, 27 of those with Quantachrome Instruments before Anton Paar’s acquisition in 2018. Dr. Thomas graduated from the University of Birmingham (UK) with a master’s degree in analytical chemistry followed by a Ph.D. in physical-inorganic chemistry. He is named co-inventor on 10 patents relating to porous solids and their characterization, and is co-author of the book “Characterization of Porous Solids and Powders: Surface Area, Pore Size and Density” (published by Springer).
