Fortnightly Description

There are many exciting next generation battery chemistries that can theoretically satisfy the performance requirements we need to effectively decarbonize the global economy. However, selecting the right electrolyte for each chemistry can be a major challenge, given that candidate electrolytes must satisfy a slew of conflicting requirements. In Episode 16 of Aionics Fortnightly, we will […]
