Paper Abstract

Demand for safe lithium-ion batteries (LiBs) for varied applications such as portable electronics, transportation, space technologies have lead to significant emphasis on development of new materials and concepts. This talk will focus on prospective soft matter electrolytes which have been synthesized from liquids (e.g. molecular solvents, ionic liquids) as the starting medium. Although conversion from liquid to the soft matter state constrains intrinsic spatial and temporal disorder of the liquid solvent, the materials properties in the soft matter state however, are far more interesting and beneficial than the liquid state. Assembly of various soft matter electrolytes in cells containing in-house synthesized nanostructured (nanotubes/sheets, mesoporous) non-carbonaceous anode and cathode materials show improved battery performance compared to the liquid electrolytes. The talk will also discuss mechanistics of ion transport in the electrolytes.
