Professor Vito Di Noto, University of Padua, will give a seminar on 5 July to LEPMI. His presentation will be titled : "Ionic Liquid - Based Electrolytes for Secondary Mg Batteries"

Journée du LEPMI

Abstract :

The development of innovative electrolytes is one of the most crucial targets in order to devise secondary batteries running on alkaline- and alkaline-earth elements characterized by a high specific energy and power and an extensive cyclability, able to provide power for a wide range of applications ranging from portable electronic devices to light-duty electric vehicles. The electrolytes must satisfy very demanding requirements, including: (a) easy migration of the alkaline- and alkaline-earth cations between the electrodes of the battery; (b) high compatibility with all the other functional materials used in the assembly of the device; (c) wide potential window and excellent stability.1

This reportsummarizes the preparation and characterization of innovative families of ionic-liquid (IL) -based electrolytes meant to address these issues, thus opening new and promising avenues for the research in this field. The electrolytes are based on δ-MgX2 magnesium salts, AlX3and1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazoliumX ILs (with X = Cl-, I- or BF4-). 2,3,4

The resulting electrolytesaresuitable for application in secondary Mg batteries, and demonstrates: (1) a conductivity at room temperature higher than 10-3 S/cm; and (2) good electrochemical performance. The structure and the interactions in materials is studied by vibrational spectroscopies (FT-MIR and –FIR). The electric response is elucidated by Broadband Electrical Spectroscopy (BES). Results allow to propose a conduction mechanism and to define the interplay existing between structural, thermal transitions and electric properties of proposed innovative electrolytes.
