SOLIDEL aimed at exploring a radically new, future technological possibility based on the principles of nanostructured macromolecular materials for the synthesis of solid polymer electrolytes (SPEs) that would enable the realization of safe, high-energy lithium-ion batteries (LIB). The project targeted to the development of single-ion SPEs that will fulfill all the requirements that the next generation SPEs should possess for the realization of safe, high-energy, long-lifetime batteries: high ionic conductivity on the order of 10-3 S/cm at room temperature, good mechanical properties on the order of GPa, and high Li+ transference number, r+, close to unity.
The final goal of the project concerned the realization of next generation secondary Li-ion batteries. This goal was extremely challenging as it required several technological and scientific breakthroughs.
