Effect of Dibenzo-18-crown-6 on the Polymer Electrolyte/Lithium Anode Interface

  • O. V. Yarmolenko
  • O. N. Efimov


Photocured polymer electrolytes, applied onto a porous polypropylene separator, with conduction by lithium cations (1 × 10−4 S cm−1 at 20°C) are designed. The polymer is formed from a 1 : 1 mixture of oligourethane dimethacrylate and polypropylene glycol monomethacrylate, which are capable of undergoing polymerization via double bonds in a liquid organic electrolyte (0.5 M LiClO4) in a 1 : 1 mixture of propylene carbonate and dimethoxyethane. The polymer electrolyte comprises a polymer composition (20 wt %), a liquid electrolyte (78 wt %), and a photoinducer (2 wt %). Effect of insertion of dibenzo-18-crown-6 into the electrolyte on its electrochemical characteristics (on the electrolyte/Li interface) is investigated. Dependences of the bulk conductivity and exchange currents at the interface on the temperature and storage duration are studied at different crown ether contents.
