- ... The polysulfide shuttle has been an impediment to the development of lithium–sulfur batteries with high capacity and cycling stability. Here, we report a new strategy to remedy the problem that uses alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) as an electrolyte additive to form a polysulfide rejection layer on the cathode surface via the electrochemical and chemical polymerization of ALA and a stable solid electrolyte ...
