Two new articles resulting from international collaborations by our group have been published. One, in Inorganic Chemistry, reports the electrochemical properties of cation-substituted olivine phosphates. The other, in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, elucidates the formation of fluorescent complexes as drivers for transition metal dissolution in high voltage spinel electrode/electrolyte interfaces. A hat tip to Chunjoong and Young-Sang for their valuable contributions to these papers.
