Prof. Duk Joon KIM and his research team was Selected for 2018 Future Materials Discovery Project
The research team led by Prof. Duk joon KIM (School of Chemical Enigneering/Polymer Science and Engineering) was selected for 2018 new research group for National Research Foundation’s Future Materials Discovery Project. The research theme is “Hyper Ion Transfer Channel Based Superionic Conductive Flexible Material.”
The research team with SKKU professors Pil Jin YOO, Gi-Ra LEE and Jp Seok PARK has organized a research group with Seoul National University, Korea University, Yonsei University, and POSTECH and will receive a total of KRW10.2 billion in research grants over the next six years. LG Chemical, L&F Co., Ltd. and Kolon Industries will participate as partners.
The goal of this project is to develop a superionic conductive solid electrolyte which is safe, flexible, and highly efficient in order to overcome the limitations of existing problems of the low energy density of conventional liquid electrolyte, reactivity with liquid electrolyte and lithium metal electrode, and solubility of polysulfide in liquid electrolyte.
In order to realize this, a new concept of hyper ion channel based polymer material will be designed and synthesized and applied to various devices.
