Abstract Scope To mitigate the use of high-risk electrolyte chemicals in lithium-ion batteries, it is necessary to perform chemical hazard assessments analyzing the environmental and human health hazards of electrolyte chemicals. In recent years, substantial research efforts have focused on advancing the safety of lithium-ion batteries. While there have been significant advancements in the field of electrode materials, the electrolyte component, which comprises most of the associated hazards of lithium-ion batteries, has seen little change since its inception. Using GreenScreenŽ for Safer Chemicals criteria, we performed a chemical hazard assessment on 96 electrolyte chemicals to determine their impact on human health and the environment. Both experimental and predictive toxicity data sources were utilized for data retrieval. Furthermore, the impacts are compared by chemical class, pointing out the most toxic components of the electrolyte solution with the purpose of providing guidance as to where safer alternatives should be explored in future research.
