CEP: Catalyzing Commercialization - Ionic Liquids Charge Ahead as Battery Electrolytes

June
2014

Advances in energy-storage devices are a must for the widespread use of electric and hybrid vehicles, the integration of renewable energy with the electric power grid, and the development of smaller, faster, more-powerful consumer electronics. While progress has been made, several challenges remain, including limitations of nonaqueous electrolytes, which have poor transport properties and are highly flammable.

The answer to this challenge: A new class of higher-performance electrolytes being developed by Boulder Ionics Corp. (BI) for longer-lived, safer batteries and ultracapacitors.
