  • Despite the progress made in Li-ion battery components, technology still faces major challenges. Among them, the development of novel electrolytes with promising characteristics is required for next-generation energy storage devices. In this work, rigid hybrid electrolytes have been prepared by infiltration of an ionic liquid solution (Pyr14TFSI) with a lithium salt (LiTFSI) into a sintered LATP ion-conducting porous ceramic. The porous ceramic 3D network was obtained via solid-state sintering of LATP powders mixed with a small amount of corn starch as pore former. A synergetic effect between the ionic liquid and support was evidenced. The resultant quasi-solid-state hybrid electrolytes exhibit high ionic conductivity...., improved ion transfer number, ... and a wide electrochemical window ....Li. The LATP porosity plays a critical role in the free ... charge because it favors higher TFSI ... confinement in the ceramic interfaces, which consequently positively influences ... and ionic conductivity. Electrochemical tests conducted at room temperature for Li/LiFePO4 cells using the hybrid electrolyte exhibited a high capacity of 150 ... LFP at C/30, and still retained 60 ... LFP at 1 C, while bare LATP does not perform well at low temperatures. These findings highlight this hybrid electrolyte as a superior alternative to the ceramic LATP electrolyte and a safer option compared with conventional organic electrolytes.
