A salt and battery: The charge-transfer reaction at the electrode/electrolyte interfaces is important in the fabrication of high-power-density lithium-ion secondary batteries. This reaction rate is increased by adding a poly(ethylene glycol)–borate ester Lewis acid to the electrolyte. Because the Lewis acid interacts preferentially with anions (X), an increase in the activity of lithium ions is induced by enhancing the dissociation of lithium salts (Li+X, see scheme).
