Event Overview:

The testing of lithium-ion battery components, including cathode, anode, separator, and even the electrolyte materials for elements down to the ppb level to improve battery performance is now the norm. As batteries become more advanced and research into new, more advanced materials grows, both analysis and research must continue to advance. The BLADE™ automated sequential microwave digestion system can safely operate at temperatures and pressures required to provide a more rapid and efficient acid extraction (leach) or total digestion of these materials, thus providing a more accurate analysis via ICP-OES and ICP-MS. The BLADE was able to use various acid mixtures to perform the sample prep and samples were subsequently analyzed. Results of the study will be presented herein.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Overview of Li-Ion battery sample prep and analysis
  • Tips for digesting anode, cathode, and electrolyte materials
  • How to analyze mixed sample matrices with varying acid mixtures

Who Should Attend:

  • Metals analysis lab managers, chemists, and technicians involved in trace metals testing
  • Lab managers and lab technicians looking to optimize heavy metals analysis of Li-Ion batteries

Lab directors and commercial lab managers looking to maximize lab productivity

Alicia Douglas Stell graduated Magna Cum Laude from Bridgewater College with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry and mathematics. She received her PhD in analytical chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where her research focused on the synthesis and characterization of silver and gold bimetal monolayer protected clusters.

Dr. Stell has been with CEM since completing her graduate degree. She has had a number of publications in technical journals spanning both her graduate career and time at CEM. During her 15 years at CEM she has grown within the company. She started her career in CEM’s Life Science division where she played a key role in the development of the Liberty™ peptide synthesizer product line. Alicia then became one of the first members of a newly formed product development team that started the initial work on the EDGE® automated extraction system. Following her work with EDGE product development, she grew into a new role exploring new markets for novel applications and innovative technology. Alicia is a crucial member of team of scientists and engineers that work to simplify laboratory workflows and bring better sample preparation to our customers.
