Liquid electrolyte solutions play a key role in lithium ion batteries (LIB) acting as carrier of lithium ions between the cathode and anode. High purity and battery grade electrolyte solutions are thus crucial for lithium ion battery performance. The most common LIB electrolytes are derived from solutions of lithium salt, such as LiPF6 in non-aqueous solvents, example alkyl carbonates or solvent blend. The choice of the electrolyte solution is dependent on both the operating conditions like temperature and the nature of the electrode material in the LIB. The performance of the electrolyte solutions can be further modified with appropriate additives.

The ready-to-use electrolyte solutions are available in different solvent blends and can support a wide variety of lithium ion battery applications. These solutions are high purity and battery grade thus making them also suitable as standards in LIB research. Customized formulations can be made by inter-mixing the electrolyte solutions or by mixing appropriate of additives.
