Enhance product safety, cycle life,
and power output

Identify breakdown products, understand degradation processes, and gain insight into failure mechanisms.

Analyze Your Way to a Better Battery

Learn more about the compounds in your batteries, including analysis of anionic content as well as determination of compounds correlated with capacity loss and degradation, using ion chromatography (IC) and IC combined with high-resolution accurate-mass mass spectrometry (HRAM-MS).

Powering a sustainable future with mass spec

Creating higher-performing and more easily reusable and recyclable lithium-ion batteries requires understanding the mechanistic pathways of battery degradation. This knowledge will help us understand how these pathways might be inhibited to create longer-lasting, safer energy storage.

Trace Degradation Analysis of Lithium-Ion Battery Components

Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are key components for portable electronics, medical devices, industrial equipment and automobiles. They are light weight, provide high energy density and recharge without memory effects. The first step in understanding fundamental processes and degradation mechanism in LIBs is understanding how they operate.

Learn about the analysis of cycled anode material and the separation of different degradation products, including the identification of manganese dissolution products deposited on the anode surface of an aged manganese-based lithium-ion battery.

Learn how the identification of non-targeted and unknown anionic electrolyte degradation products by IC and IC-HRAM MS can provide insight into mechanistic pathways that can lead to improved battery safety and performance.
