Review of computational studies on electrolytes

What is it about?

Better electrochemical devices (batteries, fuel cells, supercaps, ...) are of high importance for our future. After many years in which the focus lay on electrode materials, electrolytes are now more and more often found to be roadblocks for improving devices. Better electrolytes require better materials. Designing new materials requires insight at the atomic scale. This in turn usually requires some help from computation. We give an overview of the current state-of-the-art in this field.

Why is it important?

Though the topic is of high importance not only from a scientific point of view, this review is the first that tries captures the topic in all it's width and depth. Special focus is also put on screening electrolyte materials.
