Interaction of polymer and lithium in polymer electrolytes for energy storage

Description: Classical electrolytes consists of salts such as LiPF6 and solvents with high dielectric constants such as ethylene carbonate. Polymer electrolytes are considered as an alternative class of electrolytes since they are typically safer than classical electrolytes, and have the potential to be multifunctional. In addition, the polymer conformation changes in the presence of electrolyte,…
