Catalytic reduction of TFSI-containing ionic liquid in the presence of lithium cations

Abstract : The influence of the electrochemical double layer (EDL) structure on the electrochemical processes in ionic liquids is an intriguing subject. The complex layered structure of the EDL and its restructuring have been shown to strongly affect metal deposit morphology and electrochemical reaction kinetics. In this work, we demonstrate that the breakdown of an ionic liquid containing TFSI anions can be catalyzed through the addition of Li+ cations. We ascribe this catalytic effect to the change in the EDL structure: the Li+ cations preferentially adsorb on the electrode surface and drag the TFSI anions with them, facilitating their reduction. The decomposition of the ionic liquid leads to the formation of an SEI layer, which is studied using an electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance.
