In this work, the molecular dynamics, which is a computational simulation method, will be used to study the electrical, structural and dynamics properties of electrolytes for lithium batteries and/or supercapacitors. Electrolytes composed of ionic liquids and lithium salts will be simulated at the interface with flat and porous electrodes. Structural properties, for example, density profiles and density maps of the species at the interface will be calculated and used to analyze electrical properties such as electric potential and capacitance.
