Researchers demonstrate electrode–electrolyte interactions known to accelerate phase change in the lithium–manganese-rich (LMR) system. Leveraging the understandings of LMR interfacial Behavior, the researchers employ a unique electrolyte composition to form a cathode–electrolyte interface (CEI) that allows for the improved long-term capacity and energy retention of the LMR cathode. Our novel CEI is formed in situ through the oxidative decomposition of a room temperature ionic liquid (RTIL) electrolyte doped with a sacrificial fluorinated salt additive.
