A History of Excellence
- Manthiram’s group is blessed with a large team of highly motivated, self-driven students and postdocs, who go on to pursue impressive careers in academia, national labs, and industry or become entrepreneurs
- Manthiram’s original work opened up the broad field of polyanion oxide cathodes for batteries (see Nature Communications 2020, 11, 1550); his group continues with innovations in a broad range of batteries (see research and publication pages)
- Manthiram delivered the 2019 Chemistry Nobel Prize Lecture on behalf of Professor John B. Goodenough. View the Youtube video here: https://youtu.be/Xlm-C-qr63Y.
