Formation of Magnesium Dendrites during Electrodeposition Academic Article uri icon


  • 2018 American Chemical Society. We demonstrate the growth of dendritic magnesium deposits with fractal morphologies exhibiting shear moduli in excess of values for polymeric separators upon the galvanostatic electrodeposition of metallic Mg from Grignard reagents in symmetric Mg-Mg cells. Dendritic growth is understood on the basis of the competing influences of reaction rate, electrolyte transport rate, and self-diffusion barrier.
