Fullerenes: non-transition metal clusters as rechargeable magnesium battery cathodes

Author affiliations

Abstract

We discovered that non-transition metal clusters have great potential as rechargeable Mg battery cathodes. Fullerene (C60), one of the prototype materials, was discharged and recharged with a remarkable rate capability. This unique rate performance is attributed to its capability to delocalize electrons on the entire cluster rather than to individual atoms.
