Review the details of a study that identifies various classes of non-targeted and unknown anionic degradation products obtained from surface deposits of lithium ion batteries using ion chromatography (IC) and IC coupled with high resolution accurate mass spectrometry (HRAMS).
Understanding battery failures requires analysis of the three main battery components (cathode, anode and electrolyte), individually and how they interact together as a system.

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.
Learn which analytical tools are useful for characterizing battery cell materials and what are their benefits. Learn why is a glovebox necessary in the R&D and production of LIB and how it works.
Learn about the basics of characterizing battery materials and the special equipment required to run these tests, including the basics of testing battery materials and exemplary case studies.
