General description

Lithium hexafluorophosphate is a class of electrolytic materials that can be used in the fabrication of lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries consist of anode, cathode, and electrolyte with a charge-discharge cycle. These materials enable the formation of greener and sustainable batteries for electrical energy storage.


The product is widely used in the preparation of lithium-ion batteries.LiPF6 was used along with dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) to compose an electrolyte solution for Li-air batteries.
