The effect of oxygen crossover on the anode of a Li-O(2) battery using an ether-based solvent: insights from experimental and computational studies.


PMID 23208891

Abstract

Crosstown traffic: Further development of Li-O(2) batteries may eventually lead to their use in transportation applications. One problem that needs to be addressed is electrolyte decomposition, which has been partially mitigated by using ether- rather than carbonate-based solvents. The influence of oxygen crossover from the cathode to the anode on electrolyte, and lithium anode, decomposition in ether-based Li-O(2) batteries is investigated.
