Novel Gel Electrolyte for Efficient Rechargeable Battery UNIVERSITY OF WATERLOO


Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries have recently become infamous for causing explosions, and are known to have issues relating to efficiency. With lithium ion-based batteries so prevalent in today’s technology, the need for a safer, more efficient battery is clear. 
Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries have recently become infamous for causing explosions, and are known to have issues relating to efficiency. With lithium ion-based batteries so prevalent in today’s technology, the need for a safer, more efficient battery is clear. This Nanotechnology Engineering team has designed a novel aqueous gel electrolyte that includes silica nanoparticles and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) to reduce corrosion and induce thixotropy, the property of a solution becoming liquid-like when shaken or stirred and solid-like when left alone. This new design will improve upon the safety and efficiency of the lithium-ion battery.
 Capstone Design Team Members: Sunghee (Sydney) Bang, In Sik (Brian) Cho, Jessica Ly, and Hansol (Skylar) Yoo
