High Purity (99.98%) Vinylene Carbonate (C3H2O3) for Battery Research

Vinylene Carbonate (C3H2O3) is often utilized as solvents for lithium-ion battery electrolytes. It is electrochemically active and decomposes at low anodic potentials on lithium metal anodes, forming polymeric species that often yield a desirable solid-electrolyte interphase. It is frequently used as a co-solvent with other carbonate solvents in lithium-ion battery electrolyte formulations to improve the performance and stability of the battery.
