New Electrolytes for Lithium-ion Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Konstantin Tikhonov, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,273.00
Abstract:
Commercially available lithium-ion cells use an electrolyte containing a mixture of organic carbonate solvents combined with lithium hexafluorophosphate (LiPF6). These electrolytes have significant disadvantages limiting the performance and safety of lithium-ion batteries. First, the solvents are… More

New Electrolytes for Lithium-ion Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Konstantin Tikhonov, Dr.
Award Amount: $999,984.00
Abstract:
Commercially available lithium-ion cells use electrolytes containing a mixture of organic carbonate solvents combined with lithium hexafluorophosphate salt. These electrolytes have significant disadvantages limiting the performance and safety of large li-ion batteries for automotive applications:… More

Enhanced low cost high temperature electrolyte

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Michael Lin, Mr.
Award Amount: $149,204.00
Abstract:
Li-ion battery calendar and cycle life degrade at elevated temperatures due to processes involving the interaction of electrolyte salt, solvents and battery electrode materials. The major factor impacting automotive Li-Ion battery pack safety is the use of high vapor pressure and low flashpoint… More
