Featured Products and Services
Anodes are classically composed of natural or synthetic graphite, but researchers are investigating other carbon allotropes (carbon black, fullerenes) and non-carbon materials (lithium foil, oxides of bismuth, germanium, silicon and tin). Learn more.
Cathode materials typically include oxides of transition metals that can accommodate lithium by changing their oxidation states. We also offer many sodium-based and other salts for research into non-lithium technologies.
Conventional electrolytes consist of an organic solvent (such as ethylene carbonate) with a dissolved salt. Solid electrolytes have the potential to eliminate leakage and increase battery safety. See our product portfolio.
