This white paper highlights why broadband benchtop Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy has become a key driver for next generation battery development and quality control. Across the complete product lifecycle, benchtop NMR analysis addresses 5 of the key battery technology parameters that need to be balanced: energy density, power density, lifespan, safety, and cost.
Uniquely, true broadband NMR characterises all the key constituents in complex electrolyte mixtures that can contain species including lithium, sodium, phosphorus, fluorine, boron, carbon, hydrogen etc. Case study examples prove how characterisation of the precise chemical composition, electrical properties and the reaction mechanisms leading to failure, support novel R&D, supply chain innovation and characterisation of final cell performance.
By downloading the white paper, you will learn about critical materials challenges facing the battery industry, and the solutions that benchtop NMR can provide:
- How new formulation performance is optimised from electrolyte component diffusion and conductivity properties
- Why raw material quality checking needs precise quantitative NMR concentration measurements
- How degradation products are fingerprinted, identifying with the reaction pathways causing breakdown
- When detection of trace impurities contributes to accelerated development of longer lifespan batteries
