LiClO4 in PC electrolyte stability?

Submitted by Maggie Geselbracht / Reed College on Fri, 08/01/2008 - 14:29

Time for a post for any non-organometallic folks...(although I may not get any responses!)

We are looking at cyclic voltammograms of cathode materials for lithium ion batteries and working in a typical electrolyte, 1M LiClO4 in propylene carbonate.  This electrolyte is hygroscopic, so we make up the solutions and store them in a glove box.
