Tin makes electricity from algae

Research by a team from Firat University, Turkey has shown that tin coated copper can generate electricity from algae using a ‘multi-anode sediment microbial fuel cell’ (SMFC). The fuel cell recorded a high-power density of 2,965mW/m2 – the highest...

New lithium-ion battery research puts tin in charge

New research from teams in the US and China has continued to drive tin into the spotlight as a simple, cost-effective way to increase the amount of energy that lithium-ion batteries can hold, dramatically increasing the driving range of electric vehicles and enabling...
