The Electrochemical Society hosted Prof. Jenny Pringle’s live webinar, “The Development of New Ionic Electrolytes for Energy Storage Devices” on April 21, 2021. Her answers to questions that followed the presentation are provided below.
NOTE: Registration is required to view the webinar.
Prof. Jenny Pringle works in the Institute for Frontier Materials at Deakin University, Australia, as a chief investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) and the ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre “StorEnergy.” She received her undergraduate degrees and PhD at The University of Edinburgh, Scotland, before moving to Monash University, Australia, in 2002. From 2008-2012, she held an ARC Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship investigating the use of ionic electrolytes for dye-sensitized solar cells. Pringle moved to Deakin University in 2013. There she leads research into the development of new ionic liquids and organic ionic plastic crystals for applications including thermal energy harvesting, gas separation membranes, and lithium and sodium batteries.
