Research Institution
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to develop a lithium ion battery separator with high temperature stability by modification on the surface of the microporous PP separator via a unique chemistry. The feasibility of the proposed approach is founded on Amsens existing capabilities as well as findings of preliminary experiments conducted specifically for this project. Results of the preliminary experiments indicate that the process is highly feasible to make the desired separator. The process will be further developed in Phase I. Then the Phase I effort will be focused on evaluation of relevant properties and performance of the new separator.
