Abstract

The effects of solvents, salts, electrolyte additives and surface coatings on LiNi 0.4 Mn 0.4 Co 0.2 O 2 (NMC442) or LiNi 0.6 Mn 0.2 Co 0.2 O 2 (NMC622) have been probed using positive electrode Li-ion symmetric cells coupled with dV/dQ analysis. A robust symmetric cell design is presented which prevents hardware corrosion for over at least 800 hours of testing to 4.5 V vs. Li/Li + at 40 • C. Positive electrode symmetric cells using uncoated positive electrode materials and 1M LiPF 6 EC:EMC 3:7 or 1M LiPF 6 EMC electrolyte rapidly developed high impedance and showed poor capacity retention. However, if 1% pyridine boron trifluoride (PBF) was added to these electrolytes, cell performance was dramatically improved. Replacing LiPF 6 by LiBF 4 in the electrolytes above, with or without PBF, yielded positive electrode symmetric cells with good capacity retention. Two types of surface coatings were explored on NMC622 positive electrodes. Cells using surface-coated positive electrodes demonstrated better capacity retention for all electrolytes compared to cells without surface coatings. This work can be used as a guide by those attempting to find electrolyte/electrode pairs suitable for use in NMC/graphite cells that can operate with long lifetime to 4.5 V.
