Title (EN) METAL-AIR CELL WITH TUNED HYDROPHOBICITY
(FR) PILE MÉTAL-AIR À HYDROPHOBIE AJUSTÉE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An electrochemical cell comprising an electrolyte comprising water and a hydrophobic ionic liquid comprising positive ions and negative ions. The electrochemical cell also includes an air electrode configured to absorb and reduce oxygen. A hydrophilic or hygroscopic additive modulates the hydrophobicity of the ionic liquid to maintain a concentration of the water in the electrolyte is between 0.001 mol % and 25 mol %.
(FR)L'invention concerne une pile électrochimique comprenant un électrolyte comprenant de l'eau et un liquide ionique hydrophobe comprenant des ions positifs et des ions négatifs. La pile électrochimique comprend aussi une électrode à air configurée pour absorber et réduire l'oxygène. Un additif hydrophile ou hygroscopique module l'hydrophobie du liquide ionique pour maintenir une concentration de l'eau dans l'électrolyte entre 0,001 % molaire et 25 % molaires.
