Ionic liquids serving the Green Energy Transition

Energy transition requires a coordinated technological approach to address climate change impacts and one of the key technology focus areas is energy storage. Energy storage devices for e-mobility need robust chemical technologies in terms of device components which subsequently combined with novel engineering solutions leads to sustainable energy supply. May it be batteries, fuel cells or supercapacitors, they all need ionically conductive materials as one of the major components in electrolytes and electrodes. Ionic liquids as designer solvents with superior physicochemical and electrochemical properties show promising potential to be exploited in these areas of research.

Ionic liquids since their origin in early 20th Century have been researched as electrolytes in devices and electrodeposition of metals, alloys, and conducting organic polymers. Due to their higher electrochemical and thermal stability combined with good ionic conductivity make them realise as more sustainable electrolytes when compared to aqueous and non-aqueous systems. The possibility to create a trillion combinations make them exciting to tailor with selected properties for task specific applications. Solid supported and gel integrated ionic liquids have also reached solid-state batteries application.

This special Article Collection aims to collect cutting edge innovation in ionic liquids as electrolyte for energy storage applications. The issue will include novelty, impacts, industrialization, challenges, and future areas of development on this topic.

This Article Collection will include, but not be limited to the following topics:

  • Ionic liquids in batteries
  • Supercapacitors
  • Fuel Cells
