Abstract:

The rate of growth of passivating films on lithium in SOCl2 and 1.8 M LiAlCl4SOCl2 electrolyte has been measured by weight gain of stored lithium samples, and by pulse polarization measurements on stored cells. The film on lithium when measured in this way was found to be much thicker than when calculated from capacitance measured by pulse polarization. Micropolarization and capacitance measurements of lithium stored in 0.25 M Li2B10Cl10SOCl2 have indicated that the film formed in this electrolyte is much thinner than that formed in 1.8 M LiAlCl4SOCl2.
