KIST and UNIST joint research team develop a high-capacity battery material using salmon DNA

A Korean research team has succeeded in developing next-generation high-capacity cathode material for lithium-ion batteries. The Korea Institute of Science and Technology(KIST) announced that the joint research team of Dr. Kyung Yoon Chung(at KIST), Prof. Sang-Young Lee(at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology(UNIST)), and Dr. Wonyoung Chang (at KIST) have developed high-performance cathode material by stabilizing the surface of over-lithiated layered oxides(OLO), using the DNA of salmon.
