  • Electropolished titanium implants with a mirror-like surface support osseointegration and bone remodelling
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: Advances in Materials Science and Engineering. - 1687-8434 .- 1687-8442.
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This work characterises the ultrastructural composition of the interfacial tissue adjacent to electropolished, commercially pure titanium implants with and without subsequent anodisation, and it investigates whether a smooth electropolished surface can support bone formation in a manner similar to surfaces with a considerably thicker surface oxide layer. Screw-shaped implants were electropolished to remove all topographical remnants of the machining process, resulting in a thin spontaneously formed surface oxide layer and a smooth surface. Half of the implants were subsequently anodically oxidised to develop a thickened surface oxide layer and increased surface roughness. Despite substantial differences in the surface physicochemical properties, the microarchitecture and the composition of the newly formed bone were similar for both implant surfaces after 12 weeks of healing in rabbit tibia. A close spatial relationship was observed between osteocyte canaliculi and both implant surfaces. On the ultrastructural level, the merely electropolished surface showed the various stages of bone formation, for example, matrix deposition and mineralisation, entrapment of osteoblasts within the mineralised matrix, and their morphological transformation into osteocytes. The results demonstrate that titanium implants with a mirror-like surface and a thin, spontaneously formed oxide layer are able to support bone formation and remodelling.

  • Charge storage mechanism of alpha-MnO2 in protic and aprotic ionic liquid electrolytes
  • 2020
  • Ingår i: Journal of Power Sources. - : ELSEVIER. - 0378-7753 .- 1873-2755. ; 460
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In this work we have investigated the charge storage mechanism of MnO2 electrodes in ionic liquid electrolytes. We show that by using an ionic liquid with a cation that has the ability to form hydrogen bonds with the active material (MnO2) on the surface of the electrode, a clear faradaic contribution is obtained. This situation is found for ionic liquids with cations that have a low pKa, i.e. protic ionic liquids. For a protic ionic liquid, the specific capacity at low scan rate rates can be explained by a densely packed layer of cations that are in a standing geometry, with a proton directly interacting through a hydrogen bond with the surface of the active material in the electrode. In contrast, for aprotic ionic liquids there is no interaction and only a double layer contribution to the charge storage is observed. However, by adding an alkali salt to the aprotic ionic liquid, a faradaic contribution is obtained from the insertion of Li+ into the surface of the MnO2 electrode. No effect can be observed when Li+ is added to the protic IL, suggesting that a densely packed cation layer in this case prevent Li-ions from reaching the active material surface.

  • Probing the dynamics of complexed local anesthetics via neutron scattering spectroscopy and DFT calculations
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Pharmaceutics. - : Elsevier. - 0378-5173. ; 524:1-2, s. 397-406
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Since potential changes in the dynamics and mobility of drugs upon complexation for delivery may affect their ultimate efficacy, we have investigated the dynamics of two local anesthetic molecules, bupivacaine (BVC, C18H28N2O) and ropivacaine (RVC, C17H26N2O), in both their crystalline forms and complexed with water-soluble oligosaccharide 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD). The study was carried out by neutron scattering spectroscopy, along with thermal analysis, and density functional theory computation. Mean square displacements suggest that RVC may be less flexible in crystalline form than BVC, but both molecules exhibit very similar dynamics when confined in HP-β-CD. The use of vibrational analysis by density functional theory (DFT) made possible the identification of molecular modes that are most affected in both molecules by insertion into HP-β-CD, namely those of the piperidine rings and methyl groups. Nonetheless, the somewhat greater structure in the vibrational spectrum at room temperature of complexed RVC than that of BVC, suggests that the effects of complexation are more severe for the latter. This unique approach to the molecular level study of encapsulated drugs should lead to deeper understanding of their mobility and the respective release dynamics.

  • A high-power and fast charging Li-ion battery with outstanding cycle-life

  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Electrochemical energy storage devices based on Li-ion cells currently power almost all electronic devices and power tools. The development of new Li-ion cell configurations by incorporating innovative functional components (electrode materials and electrolyte formulations) will allow to bring this technology beyond mobile electronics and to boost performance largely beyond the state-of-theart. Here we demonstrate a new full Li-ion cell constituted by a high-potential cathode material, i.e. LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4, a safe nanostructured anode material, i.e. TiO2, and a composite electrolyte made by a mixture of an ionic liquid suitable for high potential applications, i.e. Pyr(1),4PF6, a lithium salt, i.e. LiPF6, and standard organic carbonates. The final cell configuration is able to reversibly cycle lithium for thousands of cycles at 1000 mAg(-1) and a capacity retention of 65% at cycle 2000.

  • A mixed mechanochemical-ceramic solid-state synthesis as simple and cost effective route to high-performance LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 spinels
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: Electrochimica Acta. - 0013-4686. ; 235, s. 262-269
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The implementation of high potential materials as positive electrodes in high energy Li-ion batteries requires to develop scalable and smart synthetic routes. In the case of the LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (LNMO) spinel material, a successful preparation strategy must drive the phase formation in order to obtain structural, morphological and surface properties capable to boost performances in lithium cells and minimize the electrolyte degradation. Here we discuss a novel simple and easily scalable mechanochemical synthetic route, followed by a high temperature annealing in air, to prepare LMNO materials starting from oxides. A synergic doping with chromium and iron has been incorporated, resulting in the spontaneous segregation of a CrOx-rich surface layer. The effect of the annealing temperature on the physico-chemical properties of the LMNO material has been investigated as well as the effect on the performances in Licells.

  • Designing a Safe Electrolyte Enabling Long‐Life Li/S Batteries
  • 2019

    • Lithium–sulfur (Li/S) batteries suffer from “shuttle” reactions in which soluble polysulfide species continuously migrate to and from the Li metal anode. As a consequence, the loss of active material and reactions at the surface of Li limit the practical applications of Li/S batteries. LiNO3 has been proposed as an electrolyte additive to reduce the shuttle reactions by aiding the formation of a stable solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) at the Li metal, limiting polysulfide shuttling. However, LiNO3 is continuously consumed during cycling, especially at low current rates. Therefore, the Li/S battery cycle life is limited by the LiNO3 concentration in the electrolyte. In this work, an ionic liquid (IL) [N-methyl-(n-butyl)pyrrolidinium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide] was used as an additive to enable longer cycle life of Li/S batteries. By tuning the IL concentration, an enhanced stability of the SEI and lower flammability of the solutions were demonstrated, that is, higher safety of the battery. The Li/S cell built with a high sulfur mass loading (4 mg cm−2) and containing the IL-based electrolyte demonstrated a stable capacity of 600 mAh g−1 for more than double the number of cycles of a cell containing LiNO3 additive.

  • Designing Highly Conductive Functional Groups Improving Guest-Host Interactions in Li/S Batteries
  • 2020
  • Ingår i: Small. - 1613-6810 .- 1613-6829. ; 16:2
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Li-sulfur batteries are of great interest due to their potential to surpass the energy densities of other battery types, but the low electronic conductivity of both sulfur and its discharge products requires the use of a conductive host material. The most common is the use of different porous carbons which normally are hydrophobic and hardly retain the polar discharge products of the Li/S reaction, such as Li2S and lithium polysulfides (LiPs), at the working electrode. Functionalized hosts have been proposed as a strategy to improve LiPs interactions, including the use of heteroatom doping, organic frameworks, metals, metal oxides, sulfide particles, and conductive polymers. Despite demonstrating an improved cycle life, the functionalized structures often have an intrinsic limitation related to a low electronic conductivity resulting in slow kinetics and poor rate capability of Li/S cells. Herein, recent research trends aimed at designing sulfur electrodes with highly conductive functional groups on nanostructured hosts surface are reviewed. The main concepts, key developments, and parameters for building 3D hosts architectures that enable fast charge rates and long cycle life at high sulfur loadings are discussed.

  • Free-Standing 3D-Sponged Nanofiber Electrodes for Ultrahigh-Rate Energy-Storage Devices
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. - 1944-8252 .- 1944-8244. ; 10:40, s. 34140-34146
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • We have designed a self-standing anode built-up from highly conductive 3D-sponged nanofibers, that is, with no current collectors, binders, or additional conductive agents. The small diameter of the fibers combined with an internal spongelike porosity results in short distances for lithium-ion diffusion and 3D pathways that facilitate the electronic conduction. Moreover, functional groups at the fiber surfaces lead to the formation of a stable solid-electrolyte interphase. We demonstrate that this anode enables the operation of Li-cells at specific currents as high as 20 A g-1 (approx. 50C) with excellent cycling stability and an energy density which is >50% higher than what is obtained with a commercial graphite anode.

  • Minimizing the Electrolyte Volume in Li–S Batteries: A Step Forward to High Gravimetric Energy Density
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: Advanced Energy Materials. - 1614-6840 .- 1614-6832. ; 8:26
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Sulfur electrodes confined in an inert carbon matrix show practical limitations and concerns related to low cathode density. As a result, these electrodes require a large amount of electrolyte, normally three times more than the volume used in commercial Li-ion batteries. Herein, a high-energy and high-performance lithium–sulfur battery concept, designed to achieve high practical capacity with minimum volume of electrolyte is proposed. It is based on deposition of polysulfide species on a self-standing and highly conductive carbon nanofiber network, thus eliminating the need for a binder and current collector, resulting in high active material loading. The fiber network has a functionalized surface with the presence of polar oxygen groups, with the aim to prevent polysulfide migration to the lithium anode during the electrochemical process, by the formation of S–O species. Owing to the high sulfur loading (6 mg cm−2) and a reduced free volume of the sulfide/fiber electrode, the Li–S cell is designed to work with as little as 10 µL cm−2of electrolyte. With this design the cell has a high energy density of 450 Wh kg−1, a lifetime of more than 400 cycles, and the possibility of low cost, by use of abundant and eco-friendly materials.

  • Polysulfide-containing Glyme-based Electrolytes for Lithium Sulfur Battery
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: Chemistry of Materials. - 1520-5002 .- 0897-4756. ; 27:13, s. 4604-4611

    • A new comparative investigation of lithium sulfur cells employing a tetraethylene glycol dimethyl ether-lithium trifluoromethanesulfonate (TEGDME-LiCF3SO3) electrolyte charged by various polysulfide species (Li2S2, Li2S4, Li2S6, and Li2S8) is here reported. We carefully detect the effects of lithium polysulfide addition by originally combining X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The measurements clearly reveal how the polysulfide addition affects the nature and composition of the solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) in terms of precipitated S-based species determined by XPS. The study demonstrates that the SEI layer formed on the Li anode decreases in impedance and stabilizes by the presence of polysulfide. This, together with a buffer effect strongly mitigating the sulfur-cathode dissolution and the shuttle reaction, significantly improves the stability of the lithium-sulfur cell. The data here reported clearly suggest the polysulfide as an effective additive to enhance the performance of the lithium-sulfur battery (Graph Presented).
