The electrolyte produced by Dongwha Electrolyte is applied in various forms and applications, such as lithium secondary batteries and lithium primary batteries (prismatic, cylindrical and polymer), and capacitors. We supply various high-performance and high-stability electrolytes to battery-related companies.

The electrolyte for lithium secondary batteries is an ion conductor that dissolves lithium salts in high-dielectric, high-viscosity, and low-viscosity organic solvents. It must have high ionic conductivity, low freezing point, appropriate concentration of lithium salt and electrochemical stability.

We are advancing toward becoming the world's best electrolyte manufacturer through various formulation applications and additive researches In order to manufacture high-performance, high-stability electrolytes.

01. Introduction

An electrolyte is produced by dissolving lithium salts such as LiPF6 in a mixture of 3 to 5 types of cyclic carbonate-based and linear carbonate-based organic solvents.

Type of organic solvent
Cyclic Carbonate

Linear Carbonate
Lithium Salt includes LiAsF6, LiCIO4, LiBF4, LiTFSI, LiBOB, and LiFSI
