Application of Ionic Liquids as a Green Material in Electrochemical Devices


Application of Ionic Liquids as a Green Material in Electrochemical Devices

Alok Kumar Tripathi and Rajendra Kumar Singh

Ionic liquid (IL) as electrolyte is a key component in electrochemical energy storage devices because the properties of electrolytes mostly affect the energy capacity, power density, rate capability and performance of the device. Various exotic properties of ILs can be tuned by selecting appropriate cation-anion combinations which provide the possibilities of designing an ideal electrolyte for the energy storage device. The incorporation/ entrapment/ confinement/ immobilization/ hybridization of ILs on a solid support results in ionogel electrolytes, which also offer the emerging possibilities in energy storage devices as a solid electrolyte. This chapter introduces the use of ILs and ionogels as electrolyte in lithium battery and supercapacitor application. Besides, the basic idea and properties of ILs are also briefly introduced.
