Formulation and rheological characterization of Zn slurry anode-electrolyte Slurries are complex systems in which some of the components are partially or not soluble at all. These components interact with each other and finally a low energy state will be reached, representing either a stable dispersion or phase-separated mix. A successful formulation will not only be defined by its stability, but also for its electrochemical performance.
Rheological characterization depends on many factors like viscosity, stability, flow behaviour, sample availability, among others. In our laboratory we prepare and characterize different slurries for zinc-air battery application, and characterize them to predict how will they behave at rest and during the process of discharge and charge. This project is multidisciplinary and fosters collaboration between different partners in the FlowCamp project.
