Welcome to The SHELiB Homepage


Our Investigators

Our Research



The SHELiB Center combines Materials, Analytical,
and Organic chemists to investigate solutions for
solid high energy Lithium-ion batteries.

Unity of chemistry interdisplinary studies to understand
Lithium-ion batteries and examine topics like: Transition Metal-
Oxides as Anode Material and Polyethylene derivatives as solid

Students and faculty collaborate
to publish articles in distinctive

A program encompassing students
and teachers to participate in activities
to learn more of the center and chemistry.
