Going Beyond Lithium

After attending Professor Obravac's talk on the magnesium-ion battery system, I feel like my eyes have been opened to a whole new world. Never in my life would I have considered lithium to NOT be the highest energy density anode material. Of course, it was only shown that Mg has a higher theoretical volumetric energy density for the magnesium sulfide and magnesium oxide systems, but it shows a lot of promise given that pure Mg metal is air stable and shows very low volume increase when alloyed with other metals to improve reversibility.

Whew! Just reading that sentence made me run out of breath. Gotta cut down on those run on sentences!
