Shaping the future of electromobility: Research on high-performance battery materials

Electromobility is an important contribution towards addressing global mobility needs – especially in combination with renewable energy. Lithium-ion batteries are used in the majority of today’s electric vehicles. BASF is conducting global research on innovative cathode materials, one of the most important components of these batteries.

Materials for both lithium-ion and all-solid-state batteries

Cathode materials essentially determine efficiency, reliability, costs, durability and the size of the battery. Their properties enable speed, acceleration and power – from compact cars to SUVs, from trucks to buses. BASF’s research includes the synthesis of cathode materials (including precursors), characterization of material properties and performance testing. At the same time, experts are working on components for next-generation batteries, such as all-solid-state batteries.
