The effect of H₂O on O₂ reduction in Li-O₂ batteries

Alternative title:
The effect of H2O on O2 reduction in Li-O2 batteries
Abstract:

There is significant interest in aprotic lithium-air batteries due to their high theoretical specific energy. During discharge, O2 is reduced at the positive electrode and forms Li2O2. Cells are typically discharged in O2, not air, because CO2 and H2O can interfere with the discharge reaction. However, lithium-air batteries will need to use atmospheric O2 if they are to supplant state-of-the-art lithium-ion cells. Therefore, it is impo...
