Electrolytes and conducting salts

The development of new electrolyte systems for lithium-ion batteries is of paramount importance, alongside the development of new electrode materials and separators. Lithium-ion battery electrolytes are more than colorless fluids that merely keep up the transport of ions between the electrodes. Today, they are high-purity multi-component systems with a multitude of requirements and tasks.
