  • Patent number: 9515349
    Abstract: Disclosed is a process for producing an electrolyte for an electrochemical battery cell. In this process, a Lewis acid, a Lewis base and aluminum are mixed. The mixture is heated for a minimum period of six hours to a temperature above a minimum temperature of at least 200° C. and above the melting point of the mixture. An adduct of the Lewis acid and the Lewis base is thereby formed.
