General description

Lithium trifluoromethanesulfonate 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.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.

Application

LiOTf can be used for a variety of applications such as:
  • a polymeric layer for light-emitting electrochemical cells
  • an electrolyte for lithium-ion batteries
  • a recyclable catalyst for acetylation of alcohols and diacetylation of aldehydes
  • a separator for supercapacitors

Articles

Dr. Sun reviews the recent advances in solid-state rechargeable batteries and cover the fundamentals of solid electrolytes in solid-state batteries, the theory of ion conduction, and the structures and electrochemical processes of solid-state Li batteries.

Solid oxide fuel cells and electrolyzers show potential for chemical-to-electrical energy conversion, despite early development stages.

Li-ion batteries are currently the focus of numerous research efforts with applications designed to reduce carbon-based emissions and improve energy storage capabilities.

Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) have been widely adopted as the most promising portable energy source in electronic devices because of their high working voltage, high energy density, and good cyclic performance.
