SUEP Achieved Major Progress in the Research on New Materials

    The Shanghai Key Laboratory of Electric Power Material Protection and New Materials in SUEP has made significant progress in the research on new materials. According to the latest statistics of the ESI database in November 2018, two high-level papers on material protection and battery materials published by two professors of the laboratory were newly selected as 2018 ESI Highly Cited Paper. So far, 16 papers from the key laboratory have been included in ESI since 2012, and our school's research level has been at the forefront of the world, especially in the field of corrosion science. Here are the two papers:

    Fabrication and Corrosion Resistance of Graphene - Tin Oxide Composite Films on Aluminum Alloy 6061, published by Professor Xu Qunjie's research group in Corrosion Science, 2018, 130:85-94 (SCI Zone I, with the impact factor of 4.862), which reports the construction of graphene - tin oxide composite films on the surface of aluminum alloy 6061, and improved the application performance of the material. The results of this study provide not only a new idea for improving the corrosion resistance of aluminum alloy materials commonly used in power materials, but also excellent guidance for the following research.

    And Self-evaporating from Inside to Outside to Construct Cobalt Oxide Nanoparticles-Embedded Nitrogen-doped Porous Carbon Nanofibers for High-Performance Lithium Ion Batteries published by Professor Min Yulin's research group in Chemical Engineering Journal, 2018, 334: 1642-1649 (SCI Zone I, with the impact factor of 6.735), which reports the construction of cobalt oxide nanoparticles-embedded nitrogen-doped porous carbon nanofibers for high-performance lithium ion battery. This work not only greatly enhances the performance of battery and electrode materials, but also provides a new research idea for the oriented construction of anode materials for lithium ion battery with controllable phase and morphology.
