Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: B9-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is poised to introduce superior electrolytes to the lithium-ion batteries by using a new class of low-cost, high-performance lithium salts. Currently, the cost of batteries is impacted not only by the high cost of the lithium salts, but also their relatively lower stability that li...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to develop and employ novel cost-effective lithium salts for mass production of full size lithium-ion batteries for EV/HEV applications. Small lithium-ion batteries containing fluorinated low lattice energy lithium salts are used in computers, cell phones, cameras, and medical devices. F...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

Small lithium-ion batteries, which contain fluorinated low lattice energy lithium salts, are used in computers, cellular phones, and cameras. However, for the mass production of the full size batteries needed for electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles (EV/HEV), the electrolytes derived from these salts are far too expensive. Moreover, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

The availability of an efficient fuel-cell-based automobile, running on renewable hydrogen, would improve the environment by dramatically reducing air pollutants, while also diminishing the U.S. dependence on imported petroleum. However, there is a critical need to develop a safe hydrogen storage technology before fuel-cell-based automobiles ca...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-209
Budget: 12/09/04 - 06/09/05

The proposed syntheses of new, specifically designed azobenzene derivatives will expand the armamentarium of materials needed to address deficiencies in current use of lasers which cause serious damage to human eyes and sensing devices. The proposal outlines one-step syntheses of several novel azobenzene model compounds, including those which e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

72090S03-I In order to obviate the deficiencies of currently used electrolytes in lithium rechargeable batteries, there is a compelling need for the development of solvent-free, highly conducting solid polymer electrolytes (SPEs). This project will synthesize a new class of block copolymers and plasticizers, which will be used in the formulati...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A99-117
Budget: 06/04/02 - 06/05/04

A series of low temperature electrolyte formulations, which exhibit high ionic conductivity, good electrochemical stability and no exothermic reactions in the presence of lithium metal, have been developed in the Phase-I effort. The Phase-II proposal is focused on the refinement of electrolyte formulations, improvement of flame-retarding charact...

Topic: 2001
Budget: 01/01/01 - 12/31/01

65123 Small lithium-ion batteries containing fluorinated low lattice energy lithium salts are used in computers, cellular phones, and cameras. However, the mass producion of full size batteries for use in electric vehicles (EV) is problematic because the electrolytes derived from these salts are far too costly and are potentially hazardo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A99-117
Budget: 03/31/00 - 12/10/01

A set of non-flammable electrolytes composed of a lithium salt and a mixture of carbonate and carbonate-like solvents is proposed for Li-ion batteries. Some of these specifically designed solvents, which are not commercially available, will be prepared in a single step from readily available starting materials. These electrolytes are expected ...
