Title: Designing Lithium-Sulfur Cells with Practically Necessary Parameters

Abstract

Here, the capacity limitation of insertion-compound cathodes hampers the development of high-energy-density lithium-ion batteries and thus has generated immense interest in conversion-reaction cathodes, such as sulfur. With no restriction to maintain their initial physicochemical properties, sulfur cathodes offer a high theoretical capacity (1,675 mA hr g –1). However, the amounts of sulfur and electrolyte that drastically affect the battery electrochemistry have been ignored for years; thereby, the cathode performances have often been overrated.
