PRiME 2020 Topic Close-up: Electrolytes, Interfaces, and Interphases

Topic Close-up #6

Symposium A04: Electrolytes, Interfaces, and Interphases

Symposium focus: This symposium intends to highlight the advances made in new electrolyte materials, especially those designed for the new/aggressive chemistries such as Li metal, high voltage and high capacity cathode materials, as well as the fundamental science governing their bulk/interfacial/interphasial chemistries and processes, along with the advanced in-situ/operando characterization techniques and simulation that present new insights. The organizers would like to invite contributions to the following topics:

1. New electrolyte systems and materials;
2. Fundamental understanding;
3. Advanced characterization techniques.
