A team led by researchers at DOE’s Brookhaven National Laboratory has investigated the benefits of a lithium difluorophosphate additive for electrolytes in lithium batteries with nickel-rich layered cathodes. According to Brookhaven, the possibility of high-energy-density cells composed of nickel-rich layered cathodes and lithium metal anodes is limited by processes that reduce their capacity. In an article published in Nature Energy, the researchers write: “The [additive’s] decomposition products (Li3PO4 and LiF), Read More
