20. “Effect of the Electrolyte Solvent on Redox Processes in Mg-S Batteries”

Sarah C. Bevilacqua, Kim H. Pham, and Kimberly A. See,

Inorg. Chem. 2019, 58, 10472-10482.

http://dx.doi.org/10.1021/acs.inorgchem.9b00891

tl;dr Mg deposition and stripping is demonstrated with a MgCl2 and AlCl3 electrolyte in a variety of ethereal solvents. The new electrolyte systems are used to systematically study solvent effects on sulfur electroreduction in Mg-S cells. Irreversible sulfur reduction is observed when Mg-S cells are prepared with the electrolytes, and the peak potential is found to vary with solvent suggesting that the electrolyte is active in the reduction mechanism.

19. “Solid State Divalent Ion Conductivity in ZnPS3”

Andrew J. Martinolich, Cheng-Wei Lee, I-Te Lu, Sarah C. Bevilacqua, Molleigh B. Preefer, Marco Bernardi, André Schleife, and Kimberly A. See,

Chem. Mater. 2019, 31, 3652-3661.

http://dx.doi.org/10.1021/acs.chemmater.9b00207

tl;dr ZnPS3 supports divalent ion conduction, Zn  , with low activation energies (350 meV). Zn  diffuses via a vacancy-mediated mechanism within the metal layer. The transition state that defines the activation energy along the Zn   diffusion pathway involves an extension of the P-P-S bond angle in [P2S6]   , pushing S into the van der Waals gap.
