e-SPRESSO WEBINAR: Structural Characterization of Battery Materials

e-SPRESSO WEBINAR: Structural Characterization of Battery Materials


Research and development professionals in the battery industry are always in search of the most efficient and safest battery technologies to fuel the energy needs of our world today and into the future. Critical parameters that guide design include surface area, pore size and pore volume, porosity, and density. This webinar will address how techniques such as gas sorption, mercury porosimetry, capillary flow porometry, and gas pycnometry can quickly and accurately determine these important properties on battery components including the anode, cathode, and separator.

Key insights:


  • Surface area via gas adsorption
  • Pore size and volume via gas adsorption and mercury porosimetry
  • Through pore size information via capillary flow porometry, including comparison with mercury porosimetry
  • Density and porosity via gas pycnometry

In this webinar, you will learn the recommendations for the measurement of surface area, pore size, and pore volume, and density in battery materials, including state-of-the-art data reduction methods. In addition, advanced topics such as determining pore connectivity will be introduced.
