Li- and Mn-rich x
(M = Mn, Ni, Co) layered oxides cathode materials are known to exhibit high specific capacities ≥ 250 mAhg−1
on the high-voltage operation above 4.6 V vs
which are considered as promising cathode materials for achieving advanced high-energy density lithium-ion batteries. The capacity of these cathode materials can increase by increasing the charge cut-off voltage. However, the limited anodic instability of the conventional carbonate-based organic electrolytes above 4.2 V vs
makes the attainment of high capacity from Li-rich layered oxide cathode material difficult. In order to mitigate the electrolyte issue, we have been developing new functional electrolyte components with high anodic stability above 4.6 V to stabilize high-voltage interface between Li-rich layered oxide cathode and electrolyte.1,2
High-voltage electrochemical and cathode-electrolyte interfacial studies and their correlation to high-voltage cycling performance would be presented in the meeting.
