Characteristics of Lithium bis(fluorosulfonyl)imide (LiFSI) as conducting salt for Li-ion battery electrolytes
Lithium bis(fluorosulfonyl)imide (LiFSI, LiN(SO2F)2) is used as either as co-salt or additive in Li-ion battery electrolytes.
The salt has an increased thermal stability (up to 200 °C) compared to LiPF6 and high ionic conductivity due to its medium-range anion size and higher degree of dissociation leading to a higher mobility of the ions. High purity LiFSI-based electrolytes eliminate the problem of aluminum current collector corrosion up to 5.0 V vs. Li+/Li.
The main advantage of LiFSI is its remarkable low-temperature performance, even below -20 C. When used as an additive, it aids in the formation of a uniform and stable secondary-electrolyte-interphase (SEI) on the negative electrode that can restrain the further decomposition of carbonate-based solvents and LiPF6 salt on the electrode.
