Abstract
Silatronix has developed novel organosilicon compounds that can be used as drop-in replacements for conventional carbonate electrolytes in lithium-ion cells. These organosilicon electrolytes have very high flash points and have demonstrated superior stability and safety characteristics. In the course of this research, Silatronix will optimize the composition of these electrolytes to meet the specific power, lifetime, and operating temperature requirements established in the solicitation. Working with commercial partners, we will deliver a system that provides superior safety at a cost and performance levels similar to current electrolytes.
