Battery technology

IP protection for battery, hydrogen fuel cell & energy storage technology

Chemical innovation is fundamental to clean energy storage and mobility within the global energy, consumer electronics and automotive sectors. Potential market-leading developments include hydrogen fuel cell technology and advanced materials for batteries — fundamental to delivering the economic and environmental benefits of electric vehicles. Chemistry and materials are key to battery and hydrogen sustainable solutions.

Our expertise in battery technology

Developments in battery technology involve innovations at the anode, cathode and electrolyte in the form of new material compositions, coatings and separators. With consideration given to costs, energy and power density, safety, lifetime, second life applications, sustainability and running/charging times, next generation materials are continually being developed for new solvent electrolyte additives, solid-state battery systems, high-conductivity carbons and organic carbonates, as well as organic and inorganic polymers for insulating and separating materials.

Hydrogen fuel is considered one of the two fundamental sustainable power sources required to meet global demand. Electrolysis is one of the most promising options for hydrogen production from renewable resources, with chemistry playing a critical role using electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. Our chemistry and materials IP attorneys have the experience to protect polymer electrolyte membranes within electrolysers and the technical background to secure solid IP protection for alkaline and solid oxide electrolysers.

Our chemistry and materials IP attorneys are knowledgeable about a wide range of chemical and electrochemical systems which, combined with extensive patent expertise, enables us to obtain the maximum possible legal protection for your chemistry-led solutions. We work closely with our electronics and software sector teams to provide a technically superior service.
