Determination of impurities in lithium materials

The capability to identify the presence of impurities in lithium (Li) battery materials is critical for manufacturers and suppliers to ensure that the performance of the final battery is not compromised. Li salts used in battery production are generally extracted from brines and, subsequently, have high impurity levels, which can impact battery lifetime, stability and efficiency, therefore, pushing the need for higher purity in these raw materials. For the analysis of Li salts, PerkinElmer’s NexION® 5000 Multi-Quadrupole ICP-MS instrument offers outstanding detection limits and interference correction thanks to the combination of its unique multi-quadrupole technology, true quadrupole Universal Cell and other proprietary features.
