Abstract

Abstract The effects of some organic additives containing hetero-atoms on the charge—discharge characteristics of lithium have been investigated in propylene carbonate- or dimethylsulfoxide-based electrolytes. The addition of thiophene to propylene carbonate-based electrolytes improved the coulombic efficiency of the cycle, and the addition of pyrrole was effective for cycling in LiPF 6/dimethylsulfoxide. The effect of the addition of 2-methylfuran was significant in the solutions containing LiPF 6. The a.c. impedance behavior at the electrode/electrolyte interphase suggested that the addition effects are related to changes in the interphase structure.
