Two-dimensional polymer breakthrough that could revolutionize energy storage


A research team led by Prof LOH Kian Ping, who is from the Department of Chemistry at the NUS Faculty of Science and the Centre for Advanced 2D Materials at NUS, has successfully pushed the frontier of polymer technology further by creating novel two-dimensional (2D) graphene-like polymer sheets. The novel polymer sheets synthesised by the team are unique because of their good electrical conductivities and highly regular, sub-nanometer sized pores, which can be used to store sodium ions efficiently and safely in sodium ion batteries. The design and validation of the novel 2D polymer was published in the journal Nature Chemistry in January 2017 and also highlighted in Nature’s News & Views on 23 February 2017.
