The formation of solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) filmon graphite in a lithiumbis(oxalato)borate (LiBOB)-based electrolyte was investigated by cyclic voltammetry (CV), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The effects of SEI filmon the cycleabilities of graphite were examined at roomtemperature (25 ℃) and at high temperature (70 ℃). Results showed that the SEI filmwas formed at around 1.7 V and BOB- ions were reduced to oxalate, which was one of the components of the SEI film. EIS showed that the impedance of the SEI film decreased during the charge/discharge cycle and this was favorable for cycle stability. Whether it was at room temperature or at high temperature, the graphite had better cycleability in the LiBOB-based electrolyte than in the LiPF6-based electrolyte.
