Very Interesting!

However, the current obstacle is that the chemistry involved in making a magnesium-ion battery work efficiently has yet to be perfected.

There are two primary routes of exploration, says Yuyan Shao, a senior scientist at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the piece on technologyreview.com continues.

One is focused on making batteries with a magnesium metal anode - which charges efficiently but is incompatible with conventional electrolytes.

So the search is now on for electrolytes that do work with magnesium.

Another potential solution the say is to use a different type of anode, one that works with familiar, conventional electrolytes.

This approach has also had limited success previously, but Toyota’s paper outlines how the results suggest further research would be worthwhile.

Could take a little bit longer.
