Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are now widely implemented as the power or energy source for everything from portable electronics to electric vehicles. The electrochemical charge storage in the batteries is intimately related to their material properties. This chapter gives an overview of the methods for characterizing battery materials, both ex situ and in situ in practical cells. An important consideration is the interphase between the active charge storage materials and the electrolyte, often…

Adiponitrile, CN CH2 4CN, ADN, was evaluated as both a solvent and cosolvent in safer and more electrochemically stable electrolytes suitable for high energy and power density Li-ion batteries. An
Interfacing electrolytes with electrodes in Li ion batteries
Aqui… Onde a terra termina e o mar ja nao comeca —A poetic definition of a binary liquid/solid interface by Luis de Camoes (1572). Since its birth in early 1990s, Li ion battery
Nanoscale mapping of ion diffusion in a lithium-ion battery cathode.
The spatial variation of lithium-ion diffusion times in the battery-cathode material LiCoO(2) is probed at a resolution of ∼100 nm by using an atomic force microscope to both redistribute lithium ions and measure the resulting cathode deformation, revealing that the diffusion coefficient increases for certain grain orientations and single-grain boundaries.
