Title: Oxidatively stable fluorinated sulfone electrolytes for high voltage high energy lithium-ion batteries

Abstract

New fluorinated sulfones were synthesized and evaluated in high voltage lithium-ion batteries using LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (LNMO) cathode. Fluorinated sulfones with an α-trifluoromethyl group exhibit enhanced oxidation stability, reduced viscosity and superior separator wettability as compared to their non-fluorinated counterparts. Finally, the improved performance in high voltage cells makes it a promising high voltage electrolyte for 5-V lithium-ion chemistry.
