The aim of this project is the development of novel superionic conductors based on closo-borates M(BnHn) towards the application in high energy density batteries. Consisting entirely of low weight elements, closo-borates are ideal for applications that require high gravimetric energy density. We emphasize especially on sodium and magnesium conduction, promising lower cost than lithium and in the case of divalent magnesium also higher energy densities.
