Polymers for energy storage

The research in this field is dedicated in two projects to (1) chemical and morphological modification including characterization of separator membranes (Optilyt), and (2) to the development of polymer electrolytes based on ionic liquids as well as to polymeric conducting films for lithium ion batteries (EMBATT2.0).
