Our manuscript entitled "Stable Solid Electrolyte Interphase Formation Induced by Monoquat-Based Anchoring in Lithium Metal Batteries" is just accepted for publication in ACS Energy Letters and highlighted as an Energy Spotlight and also listed among the most read articles. Congratulations to Yan and Tianhong for this excellent work!!
In this study, we demonstrated the potential of pyridine derivatives as electrolyte additives to create a homogeneous passivation layer on the surface of Li metal. We also investigated the correlation between Li metal protection and subsequent electrochemical performance and the key structural parameters of the molecules, including the number and spatial arrangement of pyridine as well as the number of positive charges.
