This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


Two choline based deep eutectic solvent namely ethaline and glyceline have been used in different applications such as metal extraction, solubility and in electrochemistry because of its easy availability, inexpensive and non-toxic nature. In this work, molecular dynamics simulation was employed to study the structural and transport properties of ethaline and glyceline when blended with Li+ based salt (Lithium Bis (trifluoromethane sulfonyl) imide (LiTf2N)) in varying concentration for the application as electrolytes in lithium ion batteries.
