Why PEO as a binder or polymer coating increases capacity in the Li–S system

Author affiliations

Abstract

PEO, used either as a binder or a polymer coating, and PEGDME, used as an electrolyte additive, are shown to increase the reversible capacity of Li–S cells. The effect, in all three cases, is the same: an improved solvent system for the electrochemistry of sulfur species and suppression of cathode passivation on discharge. This constitutes a novel interpretation of the mechanistic behaviour of polyethers in the Li–S system, and sheds new light upon several previous studies.
