In physics and chemistry when we talk about ions we are referring to molecules or atoms that have an electrical charge . This can be positive (cation) or negative (anion). But what has been discovered in recent studies on ion transport mechanisms and their relationship to energy storage. This is something that we are going to look at next, as it is of great interest to us. ion pump active transport
The study that has revealed some key aspects about ions is entitled Concentration and velocity profiles in a polymeric lithium-ion battery electrolyte . It explains what has been discovered in ion transport and that it can improve the development of more efficient batteries and, also, the storage of energy respectful with the environment.
Measurement of movement and velocity of ions Ion Pump Active Transport
One of the elements on which the aforementioned study focused was on the measurement of both the movement and the velocity of the ions. The objective was to know this so that it would be possible to improve the performance of that technology and devices that we already have . It was not easy to get this measurement and it is clear that it is something that is still being analyzed. But, the advances have been very interesting.
For this, the research team has used different measurement techniques and analysis simulations . Thus, they have come to use operand spectroscopy that analyzes the structure of ions and their activity simultaneously. In addition, macroscopic observations of ion transport mechanisms were also made and synchrotron X-rays were used.
If there is something that worries us at Soluquisa, it is that the products are always of quality and respectful of the environment . That is why this study has come to our attention. Ion transport mechanisms open a wide field to develop new electrolyte and electrode materials that contribute to energy storage that is respectful of the environment.
This is possible thanks to the fact that everything that has been put on the table to be able to analyze ion transport mechanisms as precisely as possible allows us to know the power and safety that an electrochemical cell can have . The more precision, the more options there are.
Goal: carbon neutrality
The objective of all this study on ions is clear, it is the search for carbon neutrality . This will be possible to achieve after the application of the measurement of ion transport mechanisms and the development of batteries and cells that achieve this long-awaited goal. If this is achieved, it would be emitting the same amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere from which it is withdrawn.
This means that the desired zero carbon footprint would be achieved, which, given the pollution alerts, is more necessary than ever.
We hope that this initiative to analyze ion transport mechanisms and how this can be used to contribute in the future to the use of efficient batteries and to be able to reach that zero carbon footprint will come to fruition. Also, surely this study also helps to understand more some biochemical processes that is always interesting.
