Organic radicals for the enhancement of oxygen reduction reaction in Li–O2 batteries

Author affiliations

Abstract

We examine for the first time the ability of inert carbon free-radicals as soluble redox mediators to catalyze and enhance the oxygen reduction reaction in a (TEGDME)-based electrolyte. We demonstrate that the tris(2,4,6-trichlorophenyl)methyl (TTM) radical is capable of chemically favoring the oxygen reduction reaction improving significantly the Li–O2 battery performance.
