Summary In the world of batteries, there is a saying, “Whoever controls materials, controls the battery”. A battery consists of many materials, and they have an influence on battery performance. Battery performance can be improved by repeating the following procedure: make effective use of the property of each material, combine the properties, assess the combined properties, identify any new problems, then solve the identified problem. There have been concerns over the flammability of the organic solvent electrolyte used in current lithium-ion secondary batteries. One of my research goals is to design a non-flammable battery using a room-temperature ionic liquid that has some features, such as a low volatile and non-flammable electrolyte.
