About Ana

Ana is a research chemist and our solar batteries expert. She holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and has a strong background in environmental chemistry.

As a solar energy enthusiast, she is deeply interested in how chemistry can be applied in the development and improvement of solar technologies, especially when it comes to batteries.

During her studies, her research topics included the use of amines and other technologies for carbon capture and storage, peptide synthesis, and in silico prediction of peptide activity.

After graduating, she moved abroad and worked for a biotechnology company. As a chemist, she worked in the research and development department and has experience with the optimization of organic reactions and the development and validation of purification methods for scale-up production.

Currently, Ana’s main fields of interest are electrochemistry and solar technologies. She’s passionate about learning the different alternatives for solar energy storage – the ones already available and the ones currently being developed – and loves sharing her knowledge on this topic with our readers.

You can find most of her articles in the solar battery and solar generator sections. She occasionally writes articles related to electric vehicles and solar panels.

  1. Hi Mark,
    Thanks for you comment.
    You’re right, the Fe in LiFePO4 stands for Iron. However, ‘Lithium Ion‘ refers to a type of rechargeable battery composed of cells in which lithium ions (ions are electrically charged atoms/ molecules) move between the electrodes. You can find Lithium Ion Batteries in several different chemistries. One of the most common chemistries of lithium ion batteries is the LiFePO4, in which one of the electrodes is made of lithium iron phosphate. Other examples of Lithium ion batteries are Lithium Cobalt Oxide (LiCoO2) and Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (LiNiMnCoO2). If you’re interested in learning more about lithium ion batteries, here are two interesting articles:

  2. Hi Dalton,

    We completely agree. NOCO offers some of the safest and most advanced battery chargers on the market, especially when it comes to starting or charging a dead battery.

    Thank you for your comment!
