Abstract

original image

A polymer makes it possible: Use of an advanced polymer electrolyte allowed clarification of the oxygen reaction mechanism in lithium–air solid-state batteries. The related reversible processes are identified to occur at potential values that are the lowest ever reported in the absence of catalyst.
