Abstract:

Effective stabilization of lithium metal anode is the key to the development of next-generation high-energy rechargeable batteries. In this issue of Joule, Linda Nazar and colleagues demonstrated a rationally designed electrolyte additive that can form a robust, single-ion-conducting protective layer on lithium metal surface while the battery operates, promoting uniform lithium deposition with high cycling efficiency.
