Porocarb® Lithium-Sulfur Batteries - Hierarchical porous carbon host structure for sulfur-electrodes

Heraeus Porocarb® is an electrochemically inert carbon with tunable specific surface area and pore size distribution that can be used as host structure for sulfur-electrodes. The sulfur infiltrates the internal porosity of Porocarb® with intimidate contact to the electrical conductive carbon walls. The hierarchical pore structure inhibits the polysulfide shuttle.
