Discussion of lithium and post-lithium electrochemical systems in Skolkovo 
22 November 2022

20221122-01SCTMS employees Dr. Artem Kabanov, Dr. Yelizaveta Morkhova and Dr. Evgeny Frolov took part in the XVII International Conference "Actual problems of energy conversion in lithium electrochemical systems", which was held at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Moscow) from November 14 to 18, 2022.

Energy conversion in lithium systems and post-lithium batteries were the two main topics of the event. Among the participants were more than 50 leading scientists from all over the country with oral presentations, and more than 70 poster presentations were presented.

Artem Kabanov, in his report "Searching for new solid Zn2+- ion conductors: the results of high-throughput theoretical screening", included in the main conference program, spoke about the search for materials for zinc-ion batteries. He presented a number of found substances in which Zn2+- ionic conductivity is predicted. The research is carried out jointly with Yelizaveta Morkhova and Tilmann Leisegang (Freiberg, Germany).

Yelizaveta Morkhova presented her research orally on the day of the youth reports. Topic of the presentation was: "Comprehensive study of conductivity in REE molybdates Ln2MoO6 (Ln = La, Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd, Dy)".

Evgeny Frolov spoke at the poster session, where he presented the report "Synthesis of potential Zn2+-solid electrolytes Zn3B2O6 and Zn3S2O9", which is a logical continuation of the report by A. Kabanov.
