New models will defuse a charged situation and provide clarity
Electrolytes are chemical compounds that dissociate into ions, charged species whose movement creates a current. The phenomenon is captured in electroencephalographs and electrocardiographs, is the defining characteristic of batteries and fuel cells, and is also fundamental to a myriad of environmental, chemical and industrial processes. Despite this, thermodynamic models that help us understand electrolytic systems and their behaviour are still largely based on evidence and require lots of data. The EU-funded ElectroThermo project aims to change that with an ambitious plan to fill in gaps, clear up misunderstandings in electrolyte thermodynamics and forge a clear and well-defined path forward for electrolyte solutions.
