The researchers at Chung-Ang University in South Korea have discovered that high-concentration electrolytes can improve the efficiency of lithium-ion batteries, making electric vehicles greener.

Researchers have focused on the electrolytic solutions used in batteries and have studied the impact of high-concentration electrolytes on their performances, discovering that these electrolytes improve quick charge skills and prevent problems like cell swelling caused by the lithium coating. Researchers think that their discoveries will encourage the widespread adoption of electric vehicles and will contribute to decreasing carbon emissions.

The study has analyzed the use of some electrolytes, like those based on linear carbonate with concentrated LiPF6, to improve the performances of lithium-ion batteries.
