The use of lithium metal anode at lithium metal secondary battery can provide the very high energy density. Nevertheless, there are some problems that are short cycle life, lack of safety and poor thermal stability. Cycle life and cycling efficiency decline due to passivating films, dendritic lithium and increasing surface film by the reaction of lithium metal and electrolyte. This work investigated the additive effect of benzene, toluene, tetram-ethylethylenediamine, into the electrolyte. The cycling efficiency and cyclability are improved. The reason is confirmed by decreasing film resistance and increasing polarization resistance at AC impedance analysis. Electrolyte additive has a relatively less reactivity than electrolytes lithium and is adsorbed on lithium leading to suppression of the reaction between the electrolyte and lithium as well as an improvement in the lithium deposition mophology.
