Title: Operando X-ray diffraction analysis for a glyme-based Li-O{sub 2} battery

Abstract

We investigated the effect of the carbon species in the air (oxygen) electrode, electrolyte concentration, and humidity in the supplied O{sub 2} gas on the Li-O{sub 2} reactions by using the operando XRD analysis. Regarding carbon species, we found that the over-potentials in the galvanostatic discharge-charge process were suppressed when using the KB carbon in the air electrode. The results of operando XRD measurements revealed that the Li{sub 2}O{sub 2} formed on the KB had the smaller crystalline or more amorphous like structures, which could be one reason for faster reaction kinetics of Li{sub 2}O{sub 2} dissolution. The discharge-charge curves of the cells with different concentration of LiTFSI/(G4){sub n} electrolyte showed the slight difference but less differences in the Li{sub 2}O{sub 2} formation and dissolution behaviors. In addition to the nature of Li{sub 2}O{sub 2} products, reaction of Li-salts would also have ineligible effects. We also found that the higher humidity in oxygen produced more the LiOH and promoted the Li{sub 2}O{sub 2} dissolution, which indicate that the LiOH formation could affect the Li{sub 2}O{sub 2} morphologies or surface chemistries. Our present results demonstrated that the operando XRD measurement are useful for analyzing the reaction mechanism of Li-O{sub 2} battery.
