Our research has focused on the use of ionic liquids based on acetate, trifluoroacetate, hydrogen sulfate and oxalate as new types of electrolytes for non-aqueous energy storage systems.  Electrodes studied have included MnO2, Ag2O, as well as Zn and Sn.  Additionally, work has begun on studying the interactions of VOx electrolytes for a rechargeable V-O battery.  Results will show progress towads making not only simple primary batteries, but also re chargeable systems as well.
