General description

• H2O <15 ppm
• HF <50 ppm
• APHA <50
• Battery grade

Lithium hexafluorophosphate solution in ethylmethyl carbonate 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 solutions of LiPF6 in alkyl carbonates find applications as electrolytes in lithium ion batteries and the use of high quality battery grade electrolytes having extremely low water (<15 ppm) and hydrogen fluoride (<50 ppm) contents are critical for achieving high electrochemical performance.
