Abstract

Life depends on the ability of living organisms to effectively harness the chemical potential of their environment, namely the sun, for energy, and a certain number of molecules which exist on the Earth’s surface, such as water, oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, etc. These molecules need to be activated if benefit is to be derived from them, which requires profound electronic modifications that only metal ions can provide. Truly extraordinary metalloenzymes with highly subtle mechanisms are r...

Abstract

Since Antiquity, humans have used processes to transform the materials of their environment to suit their needs. Solid-state chemistry, initially a series of recipes, became a real science of matter and its transformations following nineteenth-century scientific discoveries. It is now used to develop efficient and eco-compatible materials to transport or store energy. Solid-state chemistry thus plays a crucial role in finding the answers that science will have to bring to humanity’s new conce...

Abstract

The storage and conversion of energy is one of the major scientific challenges of the decades to come, with high stakes for the environment. What new materials will allow for more efficient and “cleaner” batteries to be developed? Jean-Marie Tarascon reviews these issues and their implications for our future and that of the planet. In particular, he discusses lithium-ion technology, the contribution of nanotechnologies, and current research using bio-inspired methods to develop innovations su...
