GCMS analysis of Fluorophosphates as decomposition products in Lithium Battery Electrolytes
contributed by Shimadzu |
The electrolyte solution is a crucial part of a typical Lithium- ion battery (LIB), consisting of Li salt (e.g., LiPF 6), organic carbonates, and additives to ensure a stable transport of Li ions during charging and discharging processes. A significant part of battery aging can be considered as a result of the decomposition of the electrolyte. At the end of these chemical and electrochemical processes oligomeric organic compounds (Figure 1)  and organophosphates [2,3] could be detected. Especially fluor containing organophosphates are of interest due to their potential neurotoxicity.
