The energy density, safety, and cycle life of batteries are critical for electric vehicles (EVs), electric aviation, and renewable energy storage. However, current Li-ion batteries still cannot simultaneously meet all these applications’ requirements. Dr. Wang’s group developed non-flammable fluorinated organic electrolytes, water-in-salt electrolytes, and solid state electrolytes to enhance the energy density, safety, and cycle life of Li batteries. The electrolyte design principle for high-capacity anodes and high-voltage cathodes is discussed.
