Research Institution
An electrolyte will be demonstrated for lithium ion batteries with increased range of charge and discharge voltages and with improved fire safety. Experimental electrolytes will be prepared in the anhydrous state and compared with existing commercial electrolyte formulations for conductivity, voltage limits and flammability. Coin cells will be used to provide proof of concept and a prismatic cell design prepared to meet NASA mission goals for the Altair ascent stage and human safety for EVA suits.
