University of Iowa Research Foundation (Iowa City, IA, US)
An electrically conducting electrode having a composite and a current collector in electrical contact with the composite, the composite can comprise at least about 10 weight percent electrically conductive particles, at least about 0.5 weight percent magnetic particles, and an optional polymeric binder, wherein composite is at least about 80 weight percent with respect to the combined weight of the electrically conductive particles, the magnetic particles and the binder. Electrochemical systems can effectively use these electrodes to improve system performance.
Leddy, Johna; Wolf, Angela; Dunwoody, Drew; Gellett, Wayne; and Ünlü, Murat Magnet incorporated electrically conductive electrodes. US Patent 7,842,178 filed April 17, 2006 and issued November 30, 2010. https://ir.uiowa.edu/patents/526
