One of promising cathode for lithium ion battery is LiMn2O4 (LMO) due to its low cost and environmental inertness. However, LMO suffers from Mn dissolution followed by cell degradation. Mn-dissolution is heavily affected by electrode surface and electrolyte, so it is electrode/electrolyte interfacial phenomenon. However, more methodical research about the relationship between the electrolyte property and Mn-dissolution has not been carried out so far. This study examine the dependence of the Mn-dissolution on electrolyte constitution at various temperature and its kinetics. The Mn2+ ion concentration in the electrolyte at vari-ous temperature storage was analyzed by using atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS). It was revealed that increasing EC content, storage duration and elevated temperature acceler-ates Mn-dissolution. It is diffusion controlled through the product layer. When increasing EC content, it diminish the activation energy of dissolution on electrode/electrolyte interface. ⓒ 2015 DGIST
