Kinetic and Morphological Aspects of Lithium Electrodes at Ambient Temperature in Propylene Carbonate
Advance in the realization of high energy secondary batteries using lithium as negative electrode is hindered by the impossibility of obtaining a great number of cycles with lithium electrodeposits strippable with high coulombic efficiencies. The difficulties encountered are linked to the reactivity of Lithium which, with all the electrolytes known, leads to the formation of passivating layers whose influence on the lithium electrochemical behavior has not been elucidated yet.
