IEA NAMICOFrench-Australian International Emerging Action in Chemistry
The IEA “COMPEX” (Towards exotic compositions of transition metal oxides used as positive electrode materials for Li or Na batteries) is developed in partnership between the Institut de Chimie de la Matière Condensée de Bordeaux (ICMCB) UMR-CNRS 5026, Bordeaux, France and the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. It addresses structural changes at atomic scale during recycling of Li or Na batteries.
Missions and research themes
This IEA project focusses mainly on 4d transition metals exotic compositions that have been poorly studied so far. Our study is focused on structural changes occurring during electrochemical intercalation and deintercalation of alkaline ions in Molybdenum (O3-LixMoO2 et O3-NaxMoO2) and Rhodium systems (O3-NaxRhO2 et P2-NaxRhO2).
