Abstract
NOHMs Technologies proposes to develop non-flammable, highly conductive ionic liquid-hybrid electrolytes that overcome safety concerns in Li-ion batteries. These electrolytes operate over a wide temperature range, and are electrochemically stable to ensure long battery lifetimes. The proposed technology is based on innovative functional ionic liquid hybrid materials developed by NOHMs Technologies, Inc. They provide a platform for engineering electrolytes with both chemical and interfacial tunability that beyond improving safety, expand the range of available battery form factors available for US Air Force applications as well as military energy needs. Because of the intrinsic wide electrochemical stability windows of NOHMs electrolytes, we propose to use them to significantly enhance the operational temperature range and safety of state of the art, emerging high-voltage Li-ion batteries.
