Energy crisis lifeline as new stunning battery breakthrough to revolutionise electric cars

  • July 05, 2022

The key to the batteries’ ability to tolerate both hot and cold temperatures lies in its special electrolyte, the team explained.

This is made of a solution of dibutyl ether mixed with a lithium salt.

The former binds weakly to lithium ions, meaning as the battery runs, the electrolyte molecules can easily let go of the ions, improving performance at sub-zero temperatures.

In addition, dibutyl ether is able to tolerate higher temperatures because it has a high boiling point of 236F.
