Brief description The aim of this project is to develop rechargeable lithium-ion air batteries based on novel advanced materials and non-flammable ionic-liquid-based electrolytes for use in electric vehicles. The success of this project would make a significant contribution to improving the safety of typical lithium-air batteries. The expected outcomes include: establishing novel lithium-ion air battery electrochemical systems using selected advanced electrode materials and electrolytes which are developed in this proposal; and, understanding the degradation mechanisms of electrode materials in the novel lithium-ion air battery systems with different advanced characterisation methods.
