"Battery Chemistry, Characterization, Analysis, Recycling and Application"
“A distinct feature of the International Graduate School is the synergetic combination of basic and applied research – motivating and preparing young scientists for future careers in science and industry in a unique and ambitious way.”
Nickel-manganese-cobalt-oxide cathodes are the most common and versatile active materials for lithium-ion batteries. In a new study, a team of researchers applied an innovative technique for the first time that enables not only direct coating of the cathode but also control of the coating thickness. Read more
The second BACCARA Power Day organized by the International Graduate School BACCARA took place on September 7th, 2023, at the picturesque Schloss of the University of Münster. The event left everyone with a profound sense of excitement and anticipation for the future of energy storage, along with a wealth of knowledge and a deep sense of optimism. The conference was thoughtfully divided into five distinct sessions, with speakers from both industry and academia. Read more
The programme of the Graduate School BACCARA (established on 1 July 2020) covers the fields of materials science, (macro-)molecular chemistry, electrochemistry, catalysis and battery cell research for energy storage as well as life cycle analysis and recycling. Two doctoral students present the importance that interdisciplinarity has in their everyday research. Read more
