Title: Review—Multifunctional Materials for Enhanced Li-Ion Batteries Durability: A Brief Review of Practical Options

Abstract

Transition metal (TM) ions dissolution from positive electrodes, migration to and deposition on negative electrodes, followed by Mn-catalyzed reactions of solvents and anions, with loss of Li+ ions, is a major degradation (DMDCR) mechanism in Li-ion batteries (LIBs) with spinel positive electrode materials. While the details of the DMDCR mechanism are still under debate, it is clear that HF and other acid species’ attack is the main cause in solutions with LiPF6 electrolyte. We first review the work on various mitigation measures for the DMDCR mechanism, now spanning more than two decades. We then discuss recent progress on our understanding of Mn species in electrolyte solutions and the extension of a mitigation measure first proposed by Tarascon and coworkers in 1999, namely chelation of TM cations, to Mn cation trapping, HF scavenging, and alkali metal ions dispensing multi-functional materials. We focus on practicable, drop-in technical solutions, based on placing such materials in the inter-electrode space, with significant benefits for LIBs performance: increased capacity retention during operation at room and above-ambient temperatures as well as robust (both maximally ionically conducting and electronically insulating) solid-electrolyte interfaces, having reduced charge transfer and film resistances at both negative and positive electrodes. We illustrate themore » multifunctional materials approach with both new and previously published data. We also discuss and offer our evaluation regarding the merits and drawbacks of the various mitigation measures, with an eye for practically relevant technical solutions capable to meet both the performance requirements and cost constraints for commercial LIBs, and end with recommendations for future work.« less
