Abstract
© 2020 Wiley-VCH GmbH Low round-trip efficiency and poor cycle stability remain the major challenges associated with lithium-oxygen (Li-O-2) batteries. These issues are primarily triggered by or correlated to the radical species produced during the operation of Li-O(2)cells, which lead to significant deterioration of the electrolytes and air electrodes. Regulation of the reactivity of these radical species would thus open up opportunities to suppress such side reactions. Herein, a dual-functioning molecule that is capable of mitigating the reactivity of radical species produced in a Li-O(2)cell by reversibly forming stable intermediate complex during both the discharge and charge processes is introduced. Specifically, 5,5-dimethyl-1-pyrroline N-oxide (DMPO) is exploited, which has been widely used as a chemical agent to detect oxygen radicals, to induce the reversible formation of an intermediate complex, DMPO-O-2(-), in the presence of superoxide radicals. It is demonstrated that DMPO mediates the O-2(-)-involved electrochemical reaction, leading to significant suppression of side reactions and a remarkably improved oxygen efficiency. Unexpectedly, it is also observed that upon charging, DMPO actively scavenges the superoxides from the surface of discharge products, thus substantially lowering the charging overpotential. The combined radical mediation and scavenging of superoxides result in cycle stability of a practical Li-O(2)cell over 200 cycles with a specific capacity of 1000 mAh g(-1). The findings indicate the importance of controlling the reactivity of radical species and suggest a new pathway toward the realization of stable and efficient Li-O(2)batteries
