Abstract
THERE IS AN ACTIVE INTEREST IN RECHARGEABLE LITHIUM BATTERIES DUE TO THE HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES POSSIBLE. THESE HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES REQUIRE THE CYCLING OF THE LITHIUM ELECTRODE IN HIGH EFFICIENCY. IT HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED THAT ELECTROLYTE COMPOSITION PLAYS A LARGE ROLE IN LITHIUM CYCLING EFFICIENCY AND THAT ADDITIVIES CAN HAVE LARGE POSITIVE EFFECTS. WE HAVE IDENTIFIED SEVERAL NEW CATEGORIES OF MATERIALS THAT ARGUABLY SHOULD GIVE POSITIVE ADDITIVE EFFECTS. THE PHASE I PROGRAM WILL EVALUATE THESE MATERIALS CHIEFLY IN TERMS OF LITHIUM CYCLING EFFICIENCY.
