Title: The unexpected discovery of the Mg(HMDS) 2 /MgCl 2 complex as a magnesium electrolyte for rechargeable magnesium batteries

Abstract

We developed a unique class of non-Grignard, aluminum-free magnesium electrolytes based on a simple mixture of magnesium compounds: magnesium hexamethyldisilazide (Mg(HMDS) 2) and magnesium chloride (MgCl 2).
