Relevance of ion clusters for Li transport at elevated salt concentrations in [Pyr12O1][FTFSI] ionic liquid-based electrolytes†
In binary ionic liquid/Li salt mixtures with the novel asymmetric anion FTFSI, electrophoretic mobility μi values of all ion species were determined using electrophoretic NMR. Li was determined to migrate in negatively charged Li-anion clusters towards the anode. This vehicular transport mechanism was shown to have decreasing relevance at elevated salt concentrations.
