Rhodia and CEA collaborating on Li-ion battery electrolytes using LiTFSi

Rhodia Aroma Performance, the leader in the production and sale of LiTFSI (Lithium bis (TriFluoromethaneSulfonyl)Imide), and CEA-Liten, a CEA (French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission) laboratory dedicated to renewable energies and energy efficiency, are collaborating on LiTFSi electrolytes for Li-ion batteries.

The safety, autonomy and cost of Li-ion battery systems are the top concern of the mobility market and a guarantee that must be provided to consumers. This collaboration with Rhodia is an opportunity for CEA to actively contribute to the development of these applications.

—Didier Marsaq, Director of CEA-Liten

Tests and demonstrations are being carried out in several phases on standard batteries ranging from R&D cells to more complex systems. They will make it possible to define the optimal conditions of use of this novel lithium salt that combines safety and performance.

The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) is a public technological research organization working in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies, and large research facilities. Liten (Laboratory for Innovation in New Energy Technologies and Nanomaterials) is a CEA institute located for the most part in Grenoble and Chambéry (on the INES site).
