Solvation vs. surface charge transfer: an interfacial chemistry game drives cation motion Academic Article uri icon


  • Electrolyte structure and ion solvation dynamics determine ionic conductivities, and ion (de)solvation processes dominate interfacial chemistry and electrodeposition barriers. We elucidate electrolyte effects facilitating or impeding Li+ diffusion and deposition, and evaluate structural and energetic changes during the solvation complex pathway from the bulk to the anode surface.
