New Electrolyte for Solid-State Batteries Combines Polymer and Glass (Charged EVs)

Scientists at the DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a novel electrolyte that addresses many of the problems of solid electrolytes by combining the two primary types – polymer and glass.  In “Compliant Glass-Polymer Hybrid Single-Ion-Conducting Electrolytes for Lithium Batteries,” published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers explain how they developed a glass-polymer hybrid by attaching perfluoropolyether chains to the surface of glass particles, adding salt, and then making a film.  The researchers also demonstrated that their hybrid electrolyte should be stable with two of the most promising next-generation cathode candidates: sulphur and high-voltage cathodes such as lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide.
