Glove box for Li-ion batteries,Wang lab Back to Equipment List
Operational Status ● Online

Omni-Lab Glove Box is dedicated only for lithium battery assembly. It is filled with argon gas. All materials must be pre-approved by staff before using in this glove box. Materials may only be placed in/removed using one of the two antechambers located on the right side of the tool.

The glove box is filled with Ar gas with both O2 and H2O concentration less than 0.5 ppm. Please inform postdoc/students if either concentration is higher than 0.5 ppm. Users just need to bring their own electrodes. All other parts for battery assembly are already in the glove box:

  • standard coil cell R032
  • Lithium foil (99.9%, Alfa Aecar )
  • Separator (Celgard 3501)
  • Electrolyte (1M LiPF6 in carbonate/diethycarbonate (EC/DEC, 1:1), Novolyte Technilogies)

Please follow the operating procedures described below. (PDF). Oxidizers, nitrogen gas and water are specifically prohibited in the glove box as these materials may react explosively if in contact with lithium. If a user contaminates the glove box by not following procedures, the glove box must be fully purged and refilled with Argon at the user’s expense. This cost may exceed $500 and the unit could be down for six weeks or more.
