To protect and serve: The mechanism by which the electrolyte additive fluoroethylene carbonate (FEC) protects anode materials is proposed. 1) FEC is reduced through the opening of the five-membered ring leading to the formation of lithium poly(vinyl carbonate), LiF, and some dimers; 2) the FEC-derived lithium poly(vinyl carbonate) enhances the stability of the SEI film. The proposed reduction mechanism could help identify new electrolyte additives.
