Electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD) is an essential ingredient in many batteries, however despite extensive research, many fundamental aspects of EMD are poorly understood. The aim of this project was to apply a multi-facetted research philosophy, which links characterization techniques such as SEM and XRD, to molecular modelling and electrochemistry, with an emphasis on the use of in situ experimental studies to deepen the current understanding of EMD structure and crystal growth mechanisms.
