The side reactions between the electrode materials and the nonaqueous electrolytes have been the major contributor to the degradation of electrochemical performance of lithium-ion batteries. A home-built high-precision leakage current measuring system was deployed to investigate the reaction kinetics between the delithiated LiNi0.6Mn0.2Co0.2O2 and a conventional nonaqueous electrolyte. It was found that the rate of parasitic reaction had strong dependence on the upper cutoff potential of the cathode material. The kinetic data also indicated a change of reaction mode at about 4.5 V vs Li+/Li.
