Customizing sulfone electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries improves their safety and performance

February 27, 2024

In our technologically dependent society, the mobility, dependability, and safety of our devices—including phones and laptops—are critical. Just as important is our ability to easily charge and recharge these devices so they are available when we need them.

To do this, we use rechargeable batteries, specifically lithium-ion batteries (LIB). They give us the freedom of movement and connectivity we need. As society’s needs evolve, so too does our tech, and so too must the batteries that allow us to use this tech. One of the most urgent concerns regarding lithium-ion batteries is their safety. Though rare, there are issues with explosions and fires caused by electrochemical system instability.
