A new article by Chunjoong and Young-Sang, Cabana group Alumni, has been selected as Editor’s Choice by the The Journal of Physical Chemistry C, a peer-reviewed journal published by the American Chemical Society (ACS). The article employs optical and X-ray microscopy to visualize the propagation of electrochemically-reacted domains in a battery electrode without any conductive additives. Additive-free electrodes present opportunities to increase the energy density of a battery, as well as constitute valuable model systems to increase our understanding of the kinetics of electrochemical reactions in solids. Under ACS Editors’ Choice, the article is sponsored for immediate, free open access by ACS due to its potential for broad public interest, an honor given to only one article from the entire ACS portfolio each day of the year.
Congratulations, Chunjoong and Young-Sang!
