Title: 1,4-Bis(trimethylsilyl)-2,5-dimethoxybenzene: a novel redox shuttle additive for overcharge protection in lithium-ion batteries that doubles as a mechanistic chemical probe

Abstract

A novel redox shuttle additive, 1,4-bis(trimethylsilyl)-2,5-dimethoxybenzene, is shown to deliver superb overcharge protection of LiFePO 4electrode in Li-ion batteries.
