Abstract Ionic liquids (ILs) are a series of stable, non-flammable, non-volatile organic compounds containing only ionic species. ILs can be used to make stable electrolyte solutions with low viscosity and high conductivity for electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices such as lithium ion batteries, fuel cells, and supercapacitors, leading to improved performance in capacity and stability. Propylene carbonate (PC) has also been used as a solvent/co-solvent to prepare electrolyte… Expand
