Nanoscale Organic Hybrid Electrolytes
Nugent, J.L.; Moganty, S.S.; Archer, L.A.
Nanoscale organic hybrid electrolytes are composed of organic-inorganic hybrid nanostructures, each with a metal oxide or metallic nanoparticle core densely grafted with an ion-conducting polyethylene glycol corona doped with lithium salt. These materials form novel solvent-free hybrid electrolytes that are particle-rich, soft glasses at room temperature; yet manifest high ionic conductivity and good electrochemical stability above 5V.
Work on synthesis and mechanical characterization of nanoscale organic hybrid materials (NOHMs) was supported by Award No. KUS-C1-018-02, made by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Our research on electrochemical characterization of NOHMs was supported by the Department of Energy Basic Energy Sciences program (Grant DE-FG02-07ER46455)). JN acknowledges support from a National Science Foundation Sustainable Materials IGERT fellowship program at Cornell.
