Alloys as Anode Materials in Magnesium Ion Batteries
This thesis is a feasibility study of the possible application of magnesium alloys for
future magnesium-ion batteries. It investigates dierent alloys and characterizes
them with respect to internal resistance, overpotentials and the reversibility of the
electrochemical reaction. SEM and EDS studies of used electrodes have also been
carried out. It has been showed that alloys, easier to handle and at a fraction of the
cost, can be used with equal or better performance than pure Mg. The seemingly
superior alloy, AZ61 exhibits a coloumbic eciency close to 100%, at higher charge
rates than pure Mg.
