Abstract

The mass transfer of O2 is a critical factor to determine the rate capability of Li–air batteries (LABs). Here, with improved O2 transport enabled by a solution-phase fluorocarbon additive 3-[2-(perfluorohexyl)ethoxy]-1,2-epoxypropane, the LAB's discharge capacity was significantly elevated to 16 368 mA h gcarbon−1@500 mA gcarbon−1 and 1792 mA h gcarbon−1@5000 mA gcarbon−1 in N2–O2 (78 : 22) with power density comparable with state-of-the-art Li-ion batteries.
