Characteristics of LiTFSI as conducting salt in electrolytes

Lithium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide (LiTFSI, LiC2F6NO4S2) is a promising alternative to the most used lithium salt, LiPF6, due to its advanced thermal and chemical stability, including a reduced sensitivity towards hydrolysis.

However, the inability of LiTFSI to form a protective layer on the aluminum current collector leading to the anodic dissolution of aluminum at high potentials (> 3.5 V vs. Li+/Li), limits its use as single salt, without LiPF6 or fluorinated solvents.

Application fields

LiTFSI is highly soluble in water and organic solvents. This enables its use in either water-in-salt electrolytes for aqueous lithium-ion batteries or highly concentrated electrolytes. When used as an additive for high-voltage applications (> 4.5 V vs. Li+/Li), it can enhance the long-term cycling stability > 500 cycles.
