Trinohex™ Ultra

Trinohex™ Ultra is high-purity 1,3,6-hexanetricarbonitrile, an electrolyte additive proven to improve the performance and extend the life of high-voltage lithium ion batteries. Trinohex Ultra works by forming a protective film around the cathode, which prevents metal ion dissolution, decomposition of the electrolyte and hydrogen fluoride attack on the cathode.

Key attributes

  • Improves electrochemical performance of high-voltage LI-ion batteries.
  • Unique tri-nitrile structure.
  • High boiling point.

EV batteries and energy storage

Research has shown that adding Trinohex Ultra to LI-ion electrolyte solutions improves:

  • Electron transfer by 20 percent over 150 cycles.
  • Discharge capacity by 25 percent over 150 cycles.

It does this by forming a film that protects the cathode from metal ion dissolution and hydrogen fluoride attack.
