Development of inorganic-conducting polymer composites and ionic liquid-based electrolytes for rechargeable lithium batteries

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • This project aims to conduct fundamental research on novel electroactive materials and electrolytes for high energy storage. A new lithium battery system consisting of inorganic-conducting polymer composites and non-flammable ionic liquid electrolytes will be developed to improve safety for electric vehicles. A novel single unit lithium battery/supercapacitor electrochemical system characterized by the dual functions of a rechargeable battery and a capacitor will be explored. Ultra-thin free-standing flexible electrode materials will also be developed to meet the various design and power needs of implantable medical devices. Outcomes include understanding the degradation mechanism of electrode materials in ionic liquid electrolytes.
