Battery performance strongly depends on the choice of the electrolyte-solvent system. Lithium bis(fluorosulfonyl)imide (LiFSI) is a highly interesting novel electrolyte. Information on physico-chemical properties of solutions of LiFSI, however, is scarce. Therefore, the density, shear viscosity, and electrical conductivity of solutions of LiFSI in three pure solvents that are interesting for battery applications: dimethyl carbonate (DMC), ethylene carbonate (EC), and propylene carbonate (PC), were studied experimentally at temperatures between 273 K and 333 K at 1 bar and concentrations of LiFSI up to 0.45 mol mol−1 in the present work. Empirical correlations of the experimental data are provided. The comparison of the data of this work with the corresponding LiPF6 data underpins the attractiveness of LiFSI as an electrolyte in lithium ion batteries.
