Lithium-ion Batteries (LIBs) are an important facet of modern society. They are the
subject of much research interest due to the increased demand for electric vehicles and
their prevalent use in portable electronics, such as mobile phones and laptops. There are
many ways in which battery performance can be improved, once such route is through
the use of electrolyte additives. This project, in collaboration with Sony and Murata
Manufacturing, focuses on electrolyte additives that affect the formation of the solid
electrolyte interphase layer (SEI), a film that forms upon and protects electrodes.
