Technology DetailsThis technology was developed to address the limitations of lithium-based polymer batteries used in aerospace applications, which need to work at temperatures ranging from -70ºC to +70ºC. Current state-of-the-art solid polymer PEO-based electrolytes, however, only have acceptable ionic conductivities above 60ºC. With a lithium salt dissolved in an ionic liquid, NASA’s new electrolyte This electrolyte technology would enhance gel has ionic conductivity exceeding 10-3 siemens/cm at room temperature. Aluminum oxide nanoparticles can be incorporated into the polymer gel electrolyte film to improve electrode kinetics polymer gel batteries in applications such as: How It Works
This technology consists of a composite material with the cross-linked structure of the copolymer, which creates nanoscale voids. The void space is filled with a liquid, and when ionic liquids are incorporated, an increase in ionic conductivity of two orders of magnitude can be achieved.
Diamine and dianhydride are reacted and cured in solution to produce an amine end-capped oligomer. The reaction with a trifunctional molecule yields a fully three-dimensional, cross-linked polymer web. The rod-coil copolymer is believed to exhibit a higher liquid uptake than any other material known in a lithium-ion battery.
Why It Is Better
PEO (and materials based on PEO) is a traditional polymer electrolyte in lithium-ion batteries. However with conventional PEO, lithium ion conductivity is two orders of magnitude too low for advanced battery designs. Also, PEO melts at temperatures above 80ºC and does not have good dimensional stability.
example, storing solar power during the day for Other gel electrolytes for lithium batteries are made from Polyvinylidene Fluoride, which has a less flexible matrix, is less environmentally friendly, and is typically more expensive to manufacture. NASA’s new versatile polymer synthesis fabricates easily and offers the flexibility of making a highly conductive electrolyte with either no volatile components (when an ionic liquid is added) or with an added solvent. With no volatile components, the fabrication process is safer and the batteries have high lithium ion conductivity at ambient to high temperatures. By adding solvents, high lithium ion conductivity can be achieved at sub-ambient to ambient temperatures.
The copolymer has a large capacity, holding more than four times its weight in liquid. Its high ionic conductivity improves lithium ion conductivity over a wide temperature range (particularly at room temperature) and enhances battery usefulness. Its cross-linked rod-coil structure and aluminum oxide nanoparticles confer mechanical strength with low interfacial resistance that produces an order of magnitude improvement at electrode interfaces.
