Large-scale virtual high-throughput screening for the identification of new battery electrolyte solvents: computing infrastructure and collective properties

Author affiliations

Abstract

A volunteer computing approach is presented for the purpose of screening a large number of molecular structures with respect to their suitability as new battery electrolyte solvents. Collective properties like melting, boiling and flash points are evaluated using COSMOtherm and quantitative structure–property relationship (QSPR) based methods, while electronic structure theory methods are used for the computation of electrochemical stability window estimators. Two application examples are presented: first, the results of a previous large-scale screening test (PCCP, 2014, 16, 7919) are re-evaluated with respect to the mentioned collective properties. As a second application example, all reasonable nitrile solvents up to 12 heavy atoms are generated and used to illustrate a suitable filter protocol for picking Pareto-optimal candidates.
