Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking Universita di Roma La Sapienza as follows The main task of this project is to design and characterize novel types of lithium conducting polymer electrolytes. This task will be pursued by the combined efforts of three academic groups having world-wide recognized experience in polymer electrolyte science, namely, the Group of Professors Wladyslaw Wieczorek and Florjanczyks of the Warsaw University of Technology in Poland, the Group of Professor Emanuel Peled at the University of Tel Aviv, Israel, and the Group of Professor Bruno Scrosati at the University La Sapienza of Rome, Italy. Broadly, the Polish Group will be involved in the synthesis of the new polymer electrolytes the Italian Group will act as the coordinator of the Project, in their basic electrochemical characterization and the Group in Israel in the fabrication and test of laboratory cell prototypes. The work plan to be carried out at the Chemistry Department of the University La Sapienza of Rome will involve the following items 1 Determination of the conductivity of the samples of polymer in salt electrolytes provided by the Warsaw Group and 2 Determination of the electrochemical properties of the optimized polymer in salt electrolytes synthesized by the Warsaw Group. The electrochemical characterization will involve the determination of the ionic conductivity of the lithium-ion transference number and of the characteristics of the lithium metal interface.
