Abstract
MaxPower, Inc. is proposing an SBIR project responding to the Army's need for improved Li-ion chemistries. The Phase I and Option Phase parts of the program will focus on new gel electrolytes with improved conductivities and stability. The proposed programon gelled electrolytes is designed to eliminate the commonly used salt LiPF6 while maintaining high conductivities (0.1 to 10¿10-3 S cm-1) over the extended temperature range of -40¿C to 70¿C. Gelled electrolytes were selected for advanced R&D because theyhave much lower vapor pressures than liquid electrolytes which is an important safety consideration. Due to high vapor pressures of liquid electrolytes, for safety reasons Li-ion cells based on these liquid electrolytes must be hermetically sealed in metalcontainers and/or cans. Since gelled electrolytes have no
