1st International Symposium on Magnesium Batteries

The 1st International Symposium on Magnesium Batteries addresses the research community in this rapidly growing field. It is the aim of the symposium to present and discuss the recent state-of-the art and the progress in the field.

Magnesium batteries have attracted considerable attention by international research activities, because magnesium offers a number of attractive features for future batteries. The metal anode has nearly double the volumetric capacity of lithium metal, at a negative reduction potential of -2.37 Vs SHE. Moreover, a significant advantage of magnesium is the lack of dendrite formation during charging, which overcomes major safety challenges encountered with using lithium metal anodes. Several breakthroughs were achieved and important progress has been made in the last years, in particular in the development of electrolytes with mild chemistry and high efficiency and in the development of first conversion and intercalation-type cathodes. First fundamental studies have elucidated mechanisms of Mg intercalation or chemical interaction of the electrolyte with the electrodes.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
