LiAsF6 in propylene carbonate—acetonitrile for primary lithium batteries
*Subscription may be required
1M LiAsF6 in 50% v/v propylene carbonate—acetonitrile (PC-AN) is an electrolyte solution which offers improved cathode utilization, improved energy efficiency and more stable discharge voltages when used in primary lithium batteries with MnO2, TiS2, Cu2S, CuS, MoO3, V2O5, V6O13 and NbSe3 cathodes. Incorporation of solvated Li+ into the cathodic material may be part of the cathodic process, and the lower viscosity and lower molar volume of acetonitrile, which is a solvator of Li+ in PC/AN mixtures, are thought to be responsible for the major improvement over LiAsF6 in PC as electrolyte solution for these cells.
