Abstract

The morphology of electrodeposited lithium in roomtemperature ionic liquids (RTILs) was observed by in situ optical microscopy. The dendrite suppression effect was partly confirmed for a PP13[FSA]-based electrolyte containing vinylene carbonate (VC). The factors for dendrite suppression are discussed; stability under cathodic conditions such as ELi/Li+ and viscosity of the base electrolyte are considered to be the relevant factors.
