122. In Situ X-ray Diffraction Investigation of the Evolution of Pb-Oxide/Pb-Sulfate Surface Layers on Pb-Alloy Anodes
Nathan Webster (CSIRO)
This presentation will describe the quantitative measurement, by *in situ* X-ray diffraction (XRD) and subsequent Rietveld-based quantitative phase analysis and thickness calculations, of the evolution of the lead dioxide and lead sulfate surface layers formed on a number of lead alloy anodes under simulated copper electrowinning conditions. A novel electrochemical flow cell is also described....
37. Effects of Ag-Embedment on electronic and ionic conductivities of LiMnPO4 and performances as a cathode for lithium-ion batteries
Dr Docheon Ahn (Pohang Accelerator Laboratory)
Ag-embedded LiMnPO4 (LMP) cathode was synthesized by solid-state reaction using 1 wt% Ag precursor. Structure, morphology, and electrical conductivity studies of Ag-embedded LMP were performed by high resolution synchrotron powder X-ray diffraction, high resolution transmission electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and four probe measurements. An Ag nanoparticle (~ 26 nm)...
79. Analysis of Manganese Dioxide Electrochemical Capacitors using Synchrotron Methods: Determining the Effects of Material Properties on Electrochemical Performance
Ms Madeleine Dupont (University of Newcastle)
Energy storage devices are an increasingly important technology due to the growing demand for energy. This demand, combined with the depletion of non-renewable resources, has increased the need for renewable energy and energy-saving technologies. These systems rely heavily on energy storage. Renewable energy sources, including wind and solar power, require storage to mitigate the effects of a...

Metallurgical coal is a major Australian commodity export, worth more than A$20b *per annum*. It is used to make coke, a vital component in steelmaking. High quality coke is important for successful operation of modern ironmaking blast furnaces. Crucial to coke quality is the strength and reactivity of this porous composite material. There is a close relationship between coke quality and...
