Abstract

Entropy, once overlooked, is an essential aspect of electrolytes. Recently emerged high-entropy electrolytes with multiple components provide vast compositional space and interfacial chemistry possibilities for electrolyte design. It is noteworthy that high-entropy electrolytes exhibit extraordinarily high ionic conductivity at low temperatures, thereby creating a new direction for batteries to operate at ultra-low temperatures. This commentary discusses the underlying mechanism, challenges encountered, and potential solutions of high-entropy electrolyte design in the hope of sparking future research in this subject. © 2023 The Author(s).
