The solvation of lithium ions in mixed nonaqueous solvents relevant to organic electrolyte lithium batteries has been investigated. The solvents studied were propylene carbonate (PC) and its mixtures with 1,2-dimethoxyethane (DME), tetrahydrofuran (THE), and acetonitrile (AN) over the entire composition range wherever In order possible. to provide a suitable context in which to evaluate Li+ solvation, other alkali metal ions and the silver ion were also studied.

The literature of ion solvation in mixed organic solvents was reviewed and literature data included for comparison with experimental results...
