Use of Polymers for Eco‐Friendly High‐Energy‐density Batteries

Professor Manfred Stamm
Leibniz‐Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden
Technische Universität Dresden

Abstract: Lithium‐sulfur batteries provide the possibility to design batteries with high storage capacity, while eco‐friendly materials can be used. So cathodes, electrolytes, separator and anodes can be built with use of organic or polymeric materials. Some examples will be discussed and the performance as well as problems illustrated.

Brief Biography of the Speaker: Prof. Dr. Manfred Stamm graduated in physics at the University of Frankfurt am Main/Germany in 1974, followed by his PhD on determination of polymer chain conformations at Mainz University in the group of Prof. Dr. E.W. Fischer. After some neutron scattering work at Forschungszentrum Jülich and interface analysis at Brookhaven National Lab/USA he got his habilitation at University of Mainz in physical chemistry on the investigation of polymer surfaces and interfaces with nanometer resolution. He became staff scientist at Max Planck Institute of Polymer Research in Mainz, before he took a professorship on physical chemistry of polymeric materials at Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) in 1999. At the same time he became head of Institute of Physical Chemistry and Physics of Polymers at Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden (IPF). Main areas of work are connected with nanostructured functional polymers, polymer interfaces, advanced polymer materials, dedicated characterisation techniques, and high-energy-density batteries. He has retired from TUD, but still is continuing research at IPF.
